William Winslow, an eight-year old from Raleigh, North Carolina, set up a community wide food drive to collect food for BackPack Buddies, an Inter-faith Food Shuttle program providing low-income students healthy meals on the weekend. Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is an innovative hunger-relief organization serving seven counties (Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Johnston, Nash, and Edgecombe) in North Carolina.

In 2013, Winslow began collecting food instead of presents for his birthday. Soon, it led to him holding his first annual food drive where he collected 1,400 pounds of food and $305. This year, he completed his second food drive collecting 3,340 pounds of food and a little over $320.
