Michael Keschner

Lloyd Harbor, New York

Michael Keschner, 15, of Lloyd Harbor, New York, a sophomore at Cold Spring Harbor Junior/Senior High School, founded and runs “Veggies For Veterans,” through which he has provided more than 4,000 pounds of fresh produce to veterans in his community by harvesting his own vegetables and soliciting donations from local grocery stores. Michael was inspired to start this project after learning about the lack of produce available at his local food banks.
