“There are 90 million people under the age of twenty-five in this country who have been raised with a value system that includes doing service. They’re itching for a way to do good. Everyone will tell you that you have to choose between making money and doing good. You don’t.” –Robert Egger, Founder and President, D.C. Central Kitchen and one of the heroes.

“It is precisely their ordinariness that makes them extraordinary. Unlike our idols of the past these new revolutionaries are not wrangling to become the dominant voice of reform. Their power stems from the aggregate. Together they are raising a chorus for change. Listen closely, and you’ll hear a growing battle cry: If we don’t take care of each other, who will?” –from the introduction by Katrina Fried
