CBS 2 Heroes - Feed Iowa First
Sonia Kendrick came home from Afghanistan a war veteran with a new purpose: to feed people in her home state of Iowa. An agronomist, she is uniquely aware of what she calls a looming food crisis. She created "Feed Iowa 1st," an organization that grows food for the area's food insecure and trains future farmers in the process.
Last year, alone, Feed Iowa 1st gave 22,000 pounds of fresh produce to local homeless shelters, food pantries and Meals on Wheels. 10 acres of farms are located across the city at places like Horizons, Rockwell Collins, GE Capital and TransAmerica. The goal is to have 25 acres this summer. If you'd like to help, go to www.feediowa1st.org
