CBS 2 Heroes - Feed Iowa First

Updated: Tuesday, April 29 2014, 10:04 PM CDT
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.
