“Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. I love everything about it, from leaves changing colors to cool weather and pumpkin spice lattes,” says Field Editor Rachel Lewis of Danville, Virginia. “I also love Halloween.

They’re easy for guests to grab and…

A child actress and model who rose to fame as Blair Waldorf on The CW’s Gossip Girl, Leighton has also appeared in movies and performed as a singer. Now she is bringing her talent to the role of ambassador for Feeding America. Leighton takes the mission personally.
