Calling All Kids!

Katie wants to encourage kids everywhere to grow vegetable seedlings in their backyard, or in a window box, so they can donate the vegetables to help fight childhood hunger. In her Amazing Kid! of the Month story, you will learn how she was able to enlist her entire school in her effort, and they are now planting a huge empty lot at their school with vegetables to feed the hungry in their community and to help feed students at their own school.
