When a New Jersey student said she hadn’t had enough to eat, she highlighted a problem at home, and one that affects some 18 million children nationwide.
A New Jersey third-grader burst into tears in the middle of her virtual class, confessing to teachers and fellow students that she was starving.
“This 9-year-old just couldn’t take it anymore,” said former New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, who manages the Fulfill Food Bank.
That heartbreaking moment led an entire community to help, including Guadagno.
“This family has been offered not only immediate food, but groceries for six months,” Guadagno said.
