State Honoree

Jonathan Hoffenberg

Arizona

Jonathan Hoffenberg, North Canyon High School, Phoenix, coordinates a food service for up to 200 people living in poverty. He recruited students who were willing to give up their free time one night a week, and now he and the volunteers prepare and serve food at Palomino Elementary School every Wednesday night. He also sends out flyers to spread awareness and encourage others to start similar services throughout the region.

"I want children and teenagers to know that the people being helped are real, and they truly appreciate what is being done for them."
