Many parents take the time to pack packed lunches for their school-going children.
Whether it’s due to concerns about the nutritional quality of school meals or simply as a convenient solution.
Some parents have adopted the routine of preparing sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, drinks and other treats for their children.
One such parent is Duran, a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who diligently prepares two lunches every day for her family.
Surprisingly, he only has one son, Dylan. The question arises spontaneously: why do you undertake to prepare two lunches for a single child?
The reason, once discovered, is not only surprising but also likely to evoke tears.
Dylan, it turns out, was bringing one lunch for himself and another for a friend. When Josette, his mother, learned this, she shared the touching conversation with her son on social media.
According to Josette’s post, Dylan had asked for two lunches one day. Perplexed, Josette asked him if he wasn’t satisfied with his first lunch.
Dylan’s response revealed that although he was indeed full, the second lunch was intended for a classmate.
This boy regularly brought only a bowl of fruit for lunch, not having the means to buy a meal at school.
Josette soon discovered the difficult circumstances faced by the little boy and his family.
Having experienced homelessness herself, she deeply empathized, having lived in a car and depending on public toilets for hygiene.
Aware of the difficulties associated with food shortages, she made it a daily practice to prepare two lunches: one for her son and another for his classmate.
As the truth unfolded, the boy’s mother learned of Josette’s compassionate gesture.
This prompted a call from the school, asking Josette to visit and discuss the heartwarming initiative.
