ABOUT THIS SERIES: Founded in 2007, Food Brings Hope provides after-school programs in 27 schools in Volusia County and two in Flagler County.

Throughout the holidays, The News-Journal is highlighting the program by publishing the stories of some of its young participants. For more information, visit foodbringshope.org.
My name is Kendon Thomas. I am 11 years old and am a fifth-grade student at Sunrise Elementary. My favorite subject is mathematics.
This is my second year in KidsZone. I participate in both Project LEAD as part of KidsZone and FBHonors. KidsZone helped teach me things in fourth grade to prepare me for fifth grade. I have already learned things this year in FBHonors. My favorite field trip last year was attending the Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Women's and Men's basketball games.
I have eight siblings: Kenia; Jaquan; Kennedy; Kamora; Kaden; Adon; Asiaja; and Cliffton.
If I could have anything for Christmas, I would like a PS5. If I could give everyone just one gift, I would give everyone happiness.
I like Food Brings Hope because the programs are fun and help me get more knowledge.
