17-year-old Girl Scout Gracie is making a difference in our local community with her Girl Scout Gold Award project, Feed the Need Tampa Bay. She is asking local restaurants in Tampa Bay to help feed the hungry one day a year at Trinity Cafe. Not only is she helping bring fine dining to the area's homeless population, but she is also helping alleviate Trinity Cafe's work load and costs weekly by rallying local community restaurants to help the cause. This project can help Trinity Cafe save more than $50,000 a year and feed more than 265 people a day! Amazing job, Gracie - thank you for helping make the world a better place! http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/tampa-teen-brings-fine-dining-to-area-homeless-population/2244894
