Cavanaugh Bell, a 7-year-old first-grader from Gaithersburg, Md., has created a food pantry to help people get essential items during the coronavirus pandemic.

His effort started as a way to help his grandmother, who has asthma, and the people who live in her community during the coronavirus outbreak.

Cavanaugh’s food pantry has served over 3,756 individuals and recently caught the attention of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who invited the first-grader to a Zoom session to chat about his charitable actions and inspirations.

“The coronavirus really impacted me in a weird way. A spark came in and made me remember that my goal is to help. It’s to change the world and help thousands of people, I realized that I actually have to go harder,” said Bell.
