One Child's Quest
Joshua Williams had a vision to help before he turned five. Now we’re teaming up with a joint belief that no child should face hunger.
Joshua Williams wasn’t even five years old when he decided to to help “stomp out world hunger.” For the past eight years, he’s been helping those in need through his non-profit, Joshua’s Heart Foundation. His focus and dedication to creating a bright future at such a young age caught our eye, and Joshua was featured in our “The Way Kids See It” video in 2014.
Now, he’s helping us spread the word about hunger in America, and giving everyone a reason to Share A Meal.
“If you give food to somebody, it can really show them that they’re loved,” Joshua says in the video. Joshua’s non-profit started spreading that love in his hometown of Miami, Florida and has expanded to combat the hunger and poverty across the world. To date, Joshua’s Heart Foundation has distributed more than 400,000 pounds of food since 2007, and provides food to 50 families in need on a weekly basis.
Joshua’s mission statement for his foundation is rooted in his passion. “Since I was 5 years old, I have wanted to do something to help the poor. I wanted to do this because I don’t want to see kids suffer,” he says on the foundation’s website. “I am going to give people food and things so they can find a way to help themselves. Whenever I work, I will give some of my money to help. I have the liberty to help the poor, you have the liberty too and together we can all make a difference in the world.”
Joining together to make a big impact is what we are all about. Help Joshua and us in seeing that no child should face hunger by visiting our Share A Meal page.
