Food insecurity is often looked at through the isolating vacuum of the home. It is rarely approached through communal resources, and collaborative action. Our program attempts to bring parents together to spark new conversation in order to change perspective. We aim to minimize the stigma around asking for help, and facilitate empathy between families at schools. As a group we distributed a questionnaire to many local high school and elementary school parents. While we found that many of these parents would not necessarily want the help, many of them were more than happy to help other parents in need. Lunch pals is a program that aims to provide lunches for food insecure children who are in school. Food insecurity happens when a person is unsure of where their next meal is going to come from, or is unsure of its quality. This is a reality for many children in the United States.
Lunch Pals works with an app in conjunction with an external program initiated and maintained by the participating school's PTA (Parent Teacher Association). In the video below we go into detail about the program.
