Class of 2017
Team Food For Thought helped to address food insecurity in Johnson County by working with volunteers and nonprofit organizations to create, install and host four blessing boxes throughout the county. Blessing boxes supplement existing food pantries by providing emergency food 24 hours per day. People are encouraged to “take what you need, give what you can.” Blessing boxes also provide users with local resource information. After completing their project, many other community citizens joined the initiative and created additional blessing boxes throughout Johnson County.
