“Our mission is to empower those in need, to improve their quality of life. We can do this by providing items of basic necessity, including food and water, which every human needs in order to survive. We also engage and educate communities at home and abroad about how to take steps towards fighting hunger and poverty on a global scale. Along the way, we hope to inspire individuals to join us on our mission, and help each other.
“Joshua’s Heart Foundation was born out of a five year-old’s simple wish to feed the hungry. Since then, the Foundation has distributed over 400,000 pounds of food to those in need."
Nine years ago, this nonprofit came from the experience and imagination of a five-year-old, Joshua Williams. According to the website, the foundation has over 1,200 youth volunteers and over 2,000 registered adult volunteers.
