At ChopChop, we love to highlight cool kids (and big kids) who are doing exciting work in the food and health world. We talked to Amina Salat, founder and volunteer of Growing Colorado Kids , an organization that encourages Kids to garden and grow food in their own backyards. Amina also volunteers at SAME Café in Denver Colorado where everyone is served, no matter his or her economic status. People pay whatever they can afford. Amina and her family came to the US from Somalia in 2004.
