Bradley F.

Bradley Ferguson, 17, of Northfield, N.J., a junior at Mainland Regional High School, started a service-learning club that over the past four years has supported veterans and people in need by refurbishing an American Legion Post, collecting food for a community food bank, making lunches for homeless people, making full-course meals for homeless veterans and growing fresh produce for those in need at several community gardens. Last year, Bradley started a food pantry at his high school to feed his peers in need and their families. He has obtained over $143,000 in grant funds to support his service projects. When Brad isn’t cooking, stocking pantry shelves, or gardening, he is on the bay in Atlantic City rowing crew for his high school’s crew team.
