New Jersey woman feeds 30,000 people

Have you ever heard of extreme couponing? That's the technique Lauren Puryear used to obtain enough food to feed 30,000 unsheltered homeless folks in New Jersey, Baltimore and Washington DC, and her effort is not finished yet. When she was little, her grandmother taught her to help and love other people. "I know she would want me to carry on her legacy," says Puryear.

Extreme couponing helps her help others. "After I couponed 50 jars of Ragu sauce and 100 boxes of Barilla pasta all for FREE, I knew I was going to make a difference in the world," she explains. When she turned 29, she vowed to feed 30,000 people before she turned 30, and she has already achieved that goal. Now she's expanding to assist everyday working Americans who are at or below the poverty line. She plans to educate them how to rise above poverty by using community resources and (of course) coupons.
