One of the things I have learned a lot about the last couple of years is hunger. I always thought I was aware of hunger and the needs of people in our community. But working in the schools has opened my eyes to see and understand “food Insecurity” in a whole new way. I have seen firsthand it’s impact on learning, child development, social/emotional skills, and self- esteem. I have seen the faces and heard the voices of kids as they came to school without having eaten that morning, or the night before. I have heard testimonies from their teachers who go above and beyond to make sure no child sits in class hungry. Sometimes that means allowing them to go to the cafeteria for breakfast even if they arrive to school late. Sometimes it means giving them their own lunch or snacks. Sometimes it means creating a food pantry in your classroom so kids can come get something to eat if they need it. Or giving out backpacks at the end of the day with food to take home. No matter how old someone is, hunger is heart breaking.
Let’s say you’re changing jobs, leaving one that was relatively secure for one with an uncertain future. You think it’s possible you’ll make more money, but it’s likely you’ll make less. What would you do beforehand?
