What can I say about Joshua that hasn't already been said.....
He is a little kid with a big heart and an even bigger dream to stomp out hunger one family at a time, and he's doing just that! I'm very proud of Joshua. May God continue to bless him as he continues to be a blessings to others!

Joshua's Heart Foundation has been doing wonderful work in the community for several years. The foundation continues to provide assistance to very needy families with little or no food. Almost every weekend there is some type of event. A food distribution, backpack program, a group of volunteers planting a community garden etc. With little to no overhead the foundation continues to make an impact.

If you are looking for an opportunity to have your children volunteer in a safe friendly organization with other families that are interested in stomping out hunger this foundation is for you.

Keep up the great work Joshua and team. All of you are truly making a difference!

I was introduced to Joshua by a friend two years ago, and as soon as I met him and heard about his charity, this young man inspired me. He is soft spoken and very polite, but beneath that understated persona, lies an extremely focused and hard working individual. His dedication to stomp out hunger in South Florida and the world, is so contagious that his charity has grown exponentially in the last few years, delivering thousands of pounds of food to hungry children and families, one family at a time.

In a private conversation not too long ago, he confided in me telling me that he wanted to meet President Obama so that he could tell him about his plan to end world hunger. Somehow, I am convinced that that dream is not too far from becoming a reality. Joshua's Heart is in my opinion one of the most unique and heart warming charities in existence. I am blessed to be part of it and will continue to spread the word. Thank you Joshua :)

I am wildly impressed with Joshua and the work that his foundation is doing to stomp out hunger here in Miami. It's amazing to see someone so young so willing to give back to the community. Joshua's compassion is contagious and I encourage everyone to learn about this foundation and do what they can to help.

It makes me think that if a child was able to have the heart to help others at such a young age. We as adults should be able to find it in our hearts to help others. We as a society have gotten away from caring about others, we need to take a step back and care for others.

Joshua's Heart foundation has been helping thousands of homeless,hungry,needy,and low income families. The fact that Joshua being a child with such a big heart is a blessing from god for all the people who benefited from his organization. I truly hope his dream of spreading worldwide will become a reality.

It is my third year with the foundation, and it goes beyond to help others. It mostly consists of young people, but is very efficient and on task.

While serving on the board it's important to recruit some volunteers. My whole family are recruited and i love to give food out to the needy. I think Joshua has a big heart and influences us all in a great way.

Lets feed more hungry people with the love of giving we all want to share.

My daughter and I became involved with Joshua's Heart last summer in order to fullfill her middle school honor society service hours requirement. However, we enjoyed the experience so much, she has gone well beyond the number of hours that were required and the rest of the family has now gotten involved. My husband and I had spoken many times before about getting our children involved in community work so that they may grow to understand a broader view of the world around them and develop empathy for others. However, it is not easy to find an organization that welcomes young children to get involve and not only watch, but actually do hands on and lead the charitable work. That is Joshua's Heart. Founded by a young boy, who still leads it today, with the support of his mother and family, Joshua's Heart invites children of all ages to take part. Even my 2-3 year old helped us fill grocery bags at one of the last food distributions!

Joshua's heart foundation is such a unique organization. The simple fact that it took the heart and determination of one little boy, with the support of his mother and others around him, to make such a great difference in the lives of many, is inspirational in itself. Joshua is such a great role model and ambassador for children everywhere, and surely opens the eyes of adults as well, while leading in the arena of stopping world hunger. Joshua was kind enough to come out to our school on Career Day and motivate our Elementary school students to make a difference in the communities in which they live, in whatever way they can. He also demonstrated to them that you are never to young to move mountains. His humanitarian values resonate throughout the cafeteria and his words resounded in the ears of our young students. He made such an impression on them. Not only did Joshua attend Career Day, he developed a bond with our school, as he has with many. He graciously introduced and implemented his food distribution program to our families and the community, feeding 100 families. What a magnificent gesture for a Title one school which 90% of the student population is on free an reduced lunch. We are actually preparing for our second implementation of the food distribution program at the end of April. Joshua, his mother and entire staff are kind, caring, and giving. We appreciate their hard work, dedication and commitment towards making this world a better place one meal at a time. Thank you!!!

Joshuas Heart Foundation has been true to their word in helping communities combat hunger. They called to ask if our organization would like to distribute beverages to our clients, we said yes, and the delivered! Looking forward to working with a Foundation that keeps it word, when they say they are going to do something, they do it.
