Free Meals for Kids
I can’t be the only one trying to figure out how to ration the food in our cupboard while my teens are eating us out of house and home!
Hungry kids can’t focus on homework. With schools shutting down or moving to online formats currently, many children are home all day- and not all have the food they need.
I completely understand how difficult it is to keep kids fed during this crisis. I have 2 at home who are eating me out of house and home.
Our house isn’t that big and so I literally had to hide some of our food in my bedroom. It might sound crazy, but if I didn’t, we would literally run out of food in a week. Because I spent more than I should have on food recently, I wouldn’t be able to replace it quickly enough.

I am crazy about my kids. I can’t keep them alone and free to work. But they make me laugh all-day.
