What I Can Do
Mary K. Hoodhood woke up in the hospital at age 27 to find out she would be paralyzed for life. She knew the dream life she thought she was headed toward was not going to be the same, but she vowed that she would build a life full of purpose. Building on her parents' lessons about service and leadership, she started a nonprofit organization to feed 125 kids. Today, Kids' Food Basket feeds 2.5 million Sack Suppers annually to kids who otherwise might not have nourishment once they leave school.
