Sophie Edwards

Marietta, Georgia

Sophie Edwards, 14, of Marietta, Ga., a freshman at Marietta High School, has volunteered hundreds of hours toward ending childhood hunger by starting her own nonprofit, increasing awareness through public outreach, and helping to raise a great deal of money to support the work of No Kid Hungry and one of its Atlanta-based partner organizations. Sophie got involved after learning in kindergarten that her best friend didn’t have enough to eat.
