In her very small town, she says, she learned that everyone pitched in if a family needed food or clothes. “It is the example my parents gave me to take care of others,” she says. Ms. Stevie ran a food-sharing program in Virginia before coming to Philadelphia in 1989. It was a big change from her small-town life, and her job is much bigger, too. Today, Share teams up with local groups to distribute food from New York to Maryland. Unfortunately, Ms. Stevie says, more people are hungry today than in 1989. The problem has many causes. A major one, she says, is that fewer people can find jobs that pay enough to buy food and other necessities. She says hunger is so widespread that many Philadelphians “know people who do not have enough food to eat every single day.” Steveanna Wynn Sharing food and responsibility for others Steveanna Wynn loves to drive her forklift. It might be the only purple fork- lift in the world, she says with pride. Ms. Stevie, as she likes to be called, uses it to move large, heavy crates of potatoes, apples, broccoli, and other healthy produce in the warehouse of the Share Food Program in Philadelphia. The groceries are packed in boxes and sold at affordable prices to people who struggle to put food on the table. But driving the forklift is only one part of Ms. Stevie’s job as executive director of Share. It’s her responsibility to make sure enough healthy food is delivered each month to 505 local cup- boards that provide emergency food to more than 600,000 low-income Philadelphia residents, including about 240,000 children. To make that happen, she oversees the purchase of food, the upkeep of equipment (such as the purple forklift), and the running of an urban farm. Ms. Stevie has a lot of help from more than a dozen “amazing” staff members and 2,500 volunteers. “I believe this is what I am supposed to do” in life, she says. 26 Illustration by Nicauly Fabian, St. Veronica Healthy Hero
