Schools Initiate Share Tables To Feed Needy Children
National Center for Children in Poverty claim that in the US, only around 15 million children live in families with incomes below the federal poverty threshold whereas in other countries, this level is much more significant. Unfortunately, it means that millions of kids go to school every day and don’t have an opportunity to have a proper lunch.
But several schools across the country initiated the project aiming at helping to feed needy kids and also to provide others with the opportunity to take more or switch food.
Everything started when the first share tables were organized in schools. The idea is pretty simple: Everybody can put unopened snacks on the table. It also means that every student can take an extra or exchange package for the one he or she likes.
