For his 11th birthday back in 2020, Isaac Winfield had one wish: to give back to his community. The youngster used his birthday money that year to start a food bank that he runs from the garden shed in his parent’s house. Over the past couple of years, Winfield’s food bank has grown exponentially. He fills grocery bags with goodies from the shed and hands them out to those in need around his hometown of Redditch in England. People in the area can stop by the shed 24/7 to take what they need, or Isaac’s parents will transport him in their van to deliver items to others. Winfield was born with a chromosomal disorder that prevents him from being able to read or write. Starting this food bank has helped his confidence soar and has given him a new purpose and life perspective.
