Local youth apply for grant to convert recyclables to rice


Penn Valley teenager Thane Messer has spent the past four years gathering recycling in his neighborhood, turning it in at the dump and buying food for the hungry. Now Messer’s social entrepreneur classmates are joining him to raise money for the next phase of the project — getting more youth in other local neighborhoods to gather their recycling and turn it in to feed hungry people in the county. The students are applying for a $2,500 grant through goodmaker.com to create kits for local neighborhood teams. The grant is awarded by popular online vote, which ends at noon Thursday. Vote online at this link: http://community1.maker.good.is/projects/recycletofood?sort=popular.
