We know a hungry child doesn’t focus as well in school, and that makes learning harder. And we take it for granted here in America, that if children can’t afford a school lunch, they can get help buying a warm meal during the day. We probably also know that’s not always the case around the globe.
Charlotte lawyer Rebecca Wofford saw that first hand in 2011 when she took law school students on a trip to Tanzania to study public education in developing countries. The kids were hungry, and the headmaster asked Wofford if there was anything she could do to help. From there, The Lunch Project was born – and its Executive Director Tricia Sistrunk joins on Charlotte Real Estate Talk to tell us how this is just not a program that sends food overseas… it does a lot more. Welcome Tricia.
