I have seen many kids different ages have their lunch taken from them when they reach the register and then given a Graham cracker and peanut butter wafer and a milk. Or worst breakfast taken and nothing given. All because parents either don't want to sign up because of pride or do not know about the programs available.
I’m signing because school lunch should be free in a place where attendance is required by law. Eating is a human right; not a privilege. Whether a child has eaten a balanced meal is also directly linked to their success in school.
Living in Africa where millions of children go hungry is a daily norm, I want to be a part of a movement that could change hunger and privation, in well known places with great economies to achieve that to places where nobody knows.
