Since the beginning of the school year, Josette has been packing not one but two lunches for Dylan… one for him and one for a little boy who sits all by himself.

She says the conversation went something like this:

Dylan: Mama can you make me TWO lunches today?

Me: Are you not getting full boo?

Dylan: Yes Mom, it's for this boy. He only eats a fruit cup for lunch can you make him lunch too? I don't think he has lunch money.

Josette then learned that Dylan's friend's mother is a single mom who had recently lost her job. As someone who was once homeless and living in her car, Josette was immediately touched by Dylan’s request.

"This hits home to me because a few years ago, me and my son were homeless," Josette said. "I was living in my car and I was washing him in bathrooms. And we didn’t have food."

After getting into the rhythm of packing two lunches for Dylan, she received a phone call from the school principal who requested her presence.

The little boy's mother discovered what Josette was doing.

The two mothers met at the principal’s office. "I know this isn't much, but I just got a job, and I know you've been feeding my son," she told Josette.

Josette refused to accept her money.

Instead, Josette worked with the volleyball team she coaches to raise more than $400. She used that money pay off all past due accounts for all the kids at Dylan’s school who need lunch.

"So now, nobody in that school owes any money, and now everyone can eat," she says.
