Emma Johnson

Germantown, Tennessee

Emma Johnson, 18, of Germantown, Tenn., a senior at Evangelical Christian School, coordinated a Feed My Starving Children meal-packing event in her community, raising $22,000 and recruiting nearly 500 volunteers to pack 106,000 meals – enough to feed hundreds of children a daily meal for a year. Emma was determined to bring a food-packing event to her community after participating in one in seventh grade.
