Josette Duran has been packing her son an extra lunch for months now and she finally asked him if he wasn’t getting enough food. he said the real reason was that it was for another boy at school who was only eating a fruit cup at lunch. So he asked if she could make him lunch too. Her heart sank but at the same time was filled with pride for what her son was doing. She shared the story in a Facebook live video. The video went viral. When the mother of the little boy who was getting the lunches found out about what was happening, she contacted the school and asked if she could pay her back. She wouldn’t accept the money. Instead, she paid it forward.
The volleyball coach and the team raised $400 to pay her back and she took that money and paid all the past due amounts at the school for the kids who need lunch.
