At the beginning of the School year Josette’s son starting doing something a little strange…every day he’d ask for 2 lunches. After about a week she finally decided to ask why.
“Me: Are you not getting full boo?
Dyl: Yes Mom its 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.”
She was blown away that her son was looking out for his friend like. Without thinking twice, she kept sending her son with 2 lunches because she knows what it’s like to go through hard times. “This hits home to me because a few years ago, me and my son were homeless. I was living in my car and I was washing him in bathrooms. And we didn’t have food.” She says she posted about her sons generosity because she was proud of him and now that their story has gone viral, hopes it will inspire more people to give back in their community.
