When Za'Nia Stinson was only 9 years old, she was so sad as she watched homeless and hungry people on the streets with signs begging for food. Unfortunately, Za'Nia's family had once experienced not having enough to eat. But the turning point for her was watching a lady and her children standing in front of a Food Lion store begging for food. People weren't supposed to go hungry, especially children. Za'Nia decided to do something about it. And so she created her own organization and named it "Z Feeds Angel Food Project." Her mission is to feed and encourage the hungry and homeless everywhere but especially to the residents of the local women and children's shelter.
Za'Nia's project prepares Go-Go bags which are gallon bags filled with food, drink, toiletries and reading material to encourage anyone who receives a bag. To help fund her project, she has received grants from the Disney Summer of Service, Dr.Jane Goodall Roots and Shoots and the Sodexo Foundation. Because of her efforts, Za'Nia has been featured in 2 commercials on the Disney Inspire channel. Za'Nia has received packing assistance from PEN Pals and BE A Reader Book Club and Support Groups, the Girl Scout Troops, BUDS of Promise and Y's Missionary Groups of Greenville Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church along with family and friends.
