A Pella graduate continues to be recognized nationally for her work in fighting hunger.

Maria Rose Belding of the Class of 2015 was named on the 22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women list. The campus-to-campus magazine pulled from over 1,000 nominations.

Belding is the co-founder and the executive director of the MEANS Database, an interactive website that connects more than 200 large-scale food banks with one another in hopes of reducing food waste, which now supports pantries in 48 states.
