During the interview portion of the competition, Miss Procter looks forward to discussing her personal platform, Step Up To The Plate: Decreasing Food Insecurity. “My platform seeks to evoke a sense of urgency among people, providing them with opportunities to act now and fill the plate of their hungry neighbor,” she said. “Through my partnership with the West Alabama Food Bank and Feeding America, ‘Step Up To The Plate’, fights hunger by conducting canned food drives, speaking to local community groups and schools, raising money, participating in and encouraging volunteerism at local soup bowls and food banks, and establishing food recovery programs at local businesses.”
