Repair the World is talkin’ about a revolution! Our Inspire Service campaign aims to mobilize a movement of volunteers inspired to act on pressing national issues. Our first campaign is focused on food justice: working to foster stronger local food systems, self reliant communities, and a healthier environment.
Of course, movements don’t just happen in a vacuum. They happen because passionate, driven people get together and DO something. So this month, we want to introduce you to Repair the World’s Movement Leaders – some really cool folks who are making it happen.

Who: Zoë Feder
Where: Austin, Texas
When: September 19
What: I organized a Hashtag Lunchbag project. Our group of around 20 teens are going to make lunches to pass out to people who might not have every meal guaranteed to them. Each lunch will have a sandwich, water bottle, note, and whatever else is donated! We will also be the ones passing out the lunches in our community.
#Excited: I am really excited to discuss food justice issues with my fellow volunteers and to help the people in our community in a very direct and tangible way.
