Duran grew accustomed to sending Dylan to school with an extra lunch and adding encouraging notes for the boys. But after a while, she received a call from the school's principal who requested she come in to speak with him.
Duran arrived to the principal's office, where she met the mother of the boy who had been receiving her extra lunches. The single mother — who had been unemployed — tried giving Duran money and told her, "I know this isn’t much, but I just got a job and I know you’ve been feeding my son."
Duran refused to accept the mother's money after hearing her story, saying, "This hits home to me because a few years ago, me and my son were homeless. I was living in my car, I was washing him in bathrooms and we didn’t have food."
Children not being able to afford school lunch came up in the news recently after a cafeteria worker quit her job after being asked to take away a student's lunch. Many believe school lunches need to be free, to ensure no child will have to go to class hungry. What do you think?
