Andee Joos

Mingo, Iowa

Andee Joos, 17, of Mingo, Iowa, a junior at Baxter High School, founded the Baxter Crop Walk, a local fundraising walk that has raised more than $3,400 to feed the hungry -- $850 going directly to her local food pantry. After learning that her county crop walk generated only a small amount of money for the local food pantry, Andee secured the support of local churches and businesses, the city council and Church World Service to organize a local walk that would help the hungry in her community and abroad.
