Distinguished Finalist

Addy Battel

Cass City, Michigan

Addy Battel, 17, of Cass City, Michigan, a member of Huron County 4-H and a home-schooled senior, co-founded “Meating the Need for Our Village,” through which nearly 500 volunteers raise animals to provide meat, milk, cheese and eggs to low-income families in the community. Addy was inspired to start her project after the only grocery store in her community closed; so far, 10,000 pounds of youth-raised meat, 2,700 gallons of milk and 300 dozen eggs have been distributed to those in need.
