Find Out How This 13-Year Old Single-Handedly Fed Thousands Of Hungry Families For The Last 6 Years

Paula Thomas | November 10th, 2014

When Joshua was just 5 years old, he noticed a homeless man begging for food while his mom was stopped at a red light.

He felt compelled to help the man and decided to give him a $20 bill that his grandmother had just given him at church.

It opened his eyes and made him realize that there were a lot of people in this world that were less fortunate than him and he wanted to help each and every one of them.

When he was 7, he started his foundation, the Joshua’s Heart Foundation. Since then, he has been able to distribute almost 500,000 pounds of food to hungry families all over Florida with the help of 1,200 volunteers.

He is truly a one-of-a-kind boy and we wanted to make sure that his story is heard.

Watch this video to find out more about his organization and his fight to stop world hunger:
