Wendell Pierce

Wendell Pierce, AKA the bunk, AKA the best actor and possibly best person alive, launched Sterling Farms, a chain of grocery and convenience stores in the food deserts of his hometown of New Orleans.

The stores offer fresh and healthy food, and offer rides home if you spend more than $50.

"The most important thing to me is creating a relationship with the community; creating an economic engine as an opportunity for them just to have access to a decent grocery store," Pierce says.
