Michael Corbett, a green designer, once wrote "you know you're on the right track when your solution to one problem accidentally solves several others." These innovators have launched outstanding projects that do just this, including: how to get more fresh food into soup kitchens; addressing food deserts and youth empowerment; and connecting Jewish traditions of service with environmental consciousness and tikkun olam.
