Andee Joos

Mingo, Iowa

Andee Joos, 18, of Mingo, Iowa, a senior at Baxter High School, is arranging to rescue and transport unsold, but still viable, produce and bakery items from her local grocery store to the Carlisle High School community pantry. Andee, who since 2015 has collected $5,000 to fight hunger through CROP Walk fundraising, is now arranging for volunteers to make deliveries to the pantry for her latest initiative--enriching the food options available to neighbors in need while reducing food waste.
