Zach Bonner, Feeding America Tampa Bay and Metropolitan Ministries collaborate to raise 1 million pounds in 24 hours
(Tampa, Fl.) When he was only 6 years old, Zachary Bonner started doing community service in 2004 after Hurricane Charlie hit Florida. In 2005 he formed the Little Red Wagon Foundation, a nonprofit organization designed to help under privileged kids with a focus on homeless youth.
To raise awareness of the plight of homeless youth, Zach walked over 4,200 miles from Tampa to Tallahassee, Tallahassee to Atlanta, Atlanta to Washington, DC, and finally the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.
Now at age 16, Zach is taking on the Guinness Book of World Records to coordinate the World's Largest Food Drive: Food for A Million. This will mean a million pounds of food for a million needy people in the Tampa Bay area and surrounding counties.
On November 7, three Tampa Bay hunger-relief organizations will go after the Guinness World Record for the "Largest Food Drive in 24 Hours at a Single Location. Zach Bonner, Feeding America Tampa Bay and Metropolitan Ministries hope to collect 1 million pounds of food - nearly double the previous record of 559,885 pounds raised by a school in Durham, North Carolina.
The "Food for A Million Food Drive" will take place at Metropolitan Ministries' holiday tent (400 West Palm Avenue- Tampa) from noon, Nov. 7 to noon, Nov. 8. Participants are encouraged to bring nonperishable foods to the drive - no perishable items, glass containers or bottled water will be accepted - or donate ahead of time at
"I believe we all have a chance to make a difference when it comes to helping those in need. said Zach, "This food drive is one way everyone can get involved by donating canned food items and be a part of history while helping those who need it the most."
The Tampa Bay Lightning honored Zachary Bonner as the third Lightning Community Hero of the year October 13. Bonner, who received a $50,000 donation from the Lightning Foundation and the Lightning Community Heroes program, will donate the money to Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding America for the Food for A Million Project.

Zach Bonner is one of the first and one of the most inspiring kids that we have profiled on IMK. His passion is the homeless and he has been giving to those in need since he was only 6.
In 2004, Hurricane Charley struck near his home in Tampa, Florida. Afterward, he collected 27 pickup trucks full of water in a little red wagon. He donated it to aid those who were displaced by the hurricane.
Then Zach created the Little Red Wagon Foundation to focus on helping homeless kids. There are 1.3 million homeless kids who live in the United States. "These kids don't have a home, they don't have a safe place to sleep at night," said Zach.
Zach has led many incredible activities in his campaign for homeless children. In 2010, he achieved his boldest effort yet. Zach walked across the USA, nearly 2,500 miles, from Tampa to Los Angeles. And he did it all to raise funds for homeless kids.
As Zach said, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Most people don't walk a thousand miles, or 2,500, but what it really means is that we all need to take that first step to get something big done. If I've helped even one homeless child, I hope I've accomplished that."
Most recently, in 2013, Zach lived outside in a box with only a sleeping bag and cardboard for 7 straight days to raise awareness for homelessness. He received over 6,000 cans of donated food that he delivered to local homeless shelters.
This video tells the story of Zach and his cross country trip.
