Woodstown, New Jersey, April 10th, 2015 – Annalise VanVranken, a 23 year old FoodCorps Service Member with the Salem County Career and Technical High School from Mays Landing, has been awarded a Sodexo Foundation Youth Grant through YSA (Youth Service America). The grant will support VanVranken in leading a community service project that addresses the issue of childhood hunger.
