October's Jefferson Award winner is Ginny Steen, who founded The Neighborhood Table in 2003.
"It is such an honor to see this organization doing such great things nearly 10 years after it started. When we hit our anniversary in December we will have served 180,000 meals to people," said Steen.
The non-profit organization provides food for the hungry in the Wisconsin Rapids area.
The group started with four area churches joining together and has grown to include 100 community groups.
Thanks to donations and volunteers, they are able to provide meals to about 375 people every Thursday and the last two Tuesdays of each month.
