A New Quest for Young Heroes: Solving World Hunger

by | Dec 9, 2021 | Blog, For Young Heroes, Free Downloads, Heroes, Quests

In a time usually known as a time of abundance, we often forget about the problems that so many of our fellow humans face: food insecurity. Imagine having to make a choice between food or life-saving medicine, groceries or baby formula, or choosing which meal to stretch out to ensure that your children won’t go to bed hungry. That’s the reality that millions of Americans and others all around the world face. In this quest, I invite you to learn about food insecurity and how you can help fight world hunger. 

Food Insecurity: Solving World Hunger

Food insecurity is more than simple hunger. Instead, it is the long-term ramifications based on a family’s inability to ensure that they have enough food to live an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is an issue throughout the U.S. and around the world, and it has been exacerbated by the COVID19 pandemic.

I invite you to watch the very first Inspiring Young Heroes Big Ideas video, which puts a spotlight on food insecurity, featuring Annie Zhu, Lillian Peterson, and Chander Payne. These young heroes have some big ideas to make a difference!

My national award, The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes — awarded to public-spirited kids from every background who have done outstanding service work for people and the planet — is all about turning the spotlight on young people who are changing the world through their actions. Why? So their stories, inspiring examples of how one person can make a positive difference, can be shared by others.

The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, which I named after my mother, honors twenty-five young people every year. Over the years, we have met several future Princess Dianas, Nelson Mandelas, and Mother Teresas. And their stories, I promise, will renew your hope in humanity. Join the adventure and become an inspiring young hero by completing the Food Insecurity quest!
