CNN Heroes Top 10: Robin Emmons

More than 72,000 people in Charlotte, North Carolina lack access to fresh produce.  When Robin Emmons discovered this problem, she turned her backyard into a garden.  Since 2008, she’s grown more than 26,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables for area residents.

One of this year’s Top 10 Heroes will become the ‘CNN Hero of the Year’ and awarded $250,000 to continue their work.

You can vote once a day, every day at www.cnnheroes.com  through Sunday, November 17.
