se, New Brunswick, N.J. Finston believes that good food should be a right, not a privilege, so she has worked to overhaul the traditional approach to food banks and soup kitchens for the hungry and homeless. She has taken the local soup kitchen and developed a catering business, and a pay-what-you-can caf that provides delicious meals to hundreds of families in the New Brunswick, N.J., region every day. Finston also has worked to create initiatives that help break the cycle of poverty. She created a culinary school that has trained more than 500 people in cooking and catering skills, and has led an effort to push for minimum nutrition standards for food provided at food banks and soup kitchens.

Zane Gates, MD, medical director, Altoona Regional Partnering For Health Services, Altoona, Pa. Despite his humble beginnings in a public housing project, Gates successfully completed medical school, but then found something was missing in his life. He moved back to his hometown and started his own free clinic for the working poorthose who can't afford to buy private coverage but earn too much to qualify for Medicaid. Later, Gates founded Partnering for Health Services, which provides access to free health care to about 3,500 people a year in the Altoona area. With eight volunteer doctors and a handful of paid staff, Gates' clinic provides care and medications, and allows patients to purchase hospital-only insurance coverage for $99 a month to receive surgery and inpatient care at Altoona Regional Health System hospitals. He also founded the Gloria Gates Memorial Foundation, in honor of his late mother, to provide academic enrichment and mentoring to children in three Altoona public housing projects, including the one where he grew up.
