One of the most wonderful parts of parenthood is how your kids inspire you to be the best you can be. Jonathon Lawler is a successful farmer in rural Indiana, growing and selling about 700,000 pounds of food each year. Last Fall his son came home from school and mentioned that a classmate had to take food from a food pantry. This surprised Jonathon; there are many farms in the area, yet people were still going hungry.

Jonathon decided to turn his farm into a non-profit and plans to donate half a million pounds of food to the local food banks and soup kitchens. 500 acres of land will go solely to feeding the community. Check it out in the video below:
