Teens For Food Justice, Inc.
The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Chief Executive Officer, Founder
A lifelong New Yorker and mother of two, with experience in the for-profit sector in management and marketing, Kathy Soll believes all New Yorkers should be committed to ending hunger, food insecurity and poor nutrition in one of the world's greatest cities and that connecting youth to this mission and each other is a critical part of achieving that goal. Teens for Food Justice was built on the concept that hands-on volunteering and helping others builds character and creates a unique level-playing field where people of all backgrounds can contribute equally through hard work and commitment, something hard to find in an increasingly polarized, stratified world. She also believes that service is a powerful tool for tapping young people's talents, resources, and abilities, helping them flourish and work productively with others, and that youth who help solve social problems become more positive, engaged, hopeful adults who remain active throughout their lives on behalf of social change.
