Peyton a finalist for young hero prize

Peyton Medick, 15, of Weston is a 2013 Finalist in the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, which celebrates 25 inspiring, public-spirited young people who have made a significant positive difference.

Peyton founded the nonprofit Peyton's Promise to "make the world a better place, one can at a time" when she was 8 years old and learned about childhood hunger. She has collected more than 100 tons of food and more than $30,000 for 25 food pantries throughout the U.S.

Peyton organizes teams of volunteers to distribute lists of most-needed items to shoppers as they enter grocery stores and to collect donations as they leave. She also trains her peers to run school-wide food drives. In her newest program, the Remote Soup Kitchen, volunteers serve a hot meal to those waiting in line for food at the local food pantry. She'll soon be adding Blessings in a Backpack so as to send children home from school on Fridays with food for the weekend.
