Pearl Daskam

Ubly, Michigan

Pearl Daskam, 17, of Ubly, Michigan, a member of Huron County 4-H and a home-schooled senior, co-founded “Meating the Need for Our Village,” which has distributed 10,000 pounds of youth-raised meat, 2,700 gallons of milk and 300 dozen eggs to people in need in her community; her efforts include securing grants, recruiting volunteers, raising chickens and organizing deliveries. Pearl was inspired to start her project after her town’s only grocery store closed and the community became a food desert
