Gordon is one of the Auntie Karen Foundation's Jamaican Yams. Yusef and Yolanda are Whipper and Mya’s parents. Whipper is Gordon's best friend.
Whipper's parents fear that Gordon's weight and eating habits are putting him at risk for developing Diabetes. To help Gordon, they are planting a garden; giving Gordon access to fresh vegetables will help him eat healthier foods. Working in the garden will help Gordon get some needed exercise.
