This very special award will be given to an individual in the community who personifies the SOUL FOOD USA philosophy of “Do what you can, where you are, with what you have, and you will change the world!” Do you know someone who is changing the world around them, one act of kindness, love, and compassion at a time? Nominate them for the Starfish Award by sending an email to or a message on our Facebook page ( by August 19th.
