Sarah Cabrera

Cape Coral, Florida

Sarah Cabrera, 17, of Cape Coral, Fla., a senior at North Fort Myers High School, has celebrated her birthday for the past six years by collecting non-perishable food – roughly 4,000 pounds so far, all donated to the Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Cape Coral Caring Center. By rounding up friends, family, teachers, pastors and others to spread the word, Sarah has fed people in need in her community, and inspired others to start their own birthday food drives.
