This Grandma not only cares about her own, but also 300 other kids! Students who rely on free lunches during the school year can run out of luck when school's out. 74-year-old Phyllis Shaughnessy was determined to bridge this gap. She started Green Lantern Lunches, where she hand packs, with help, 300 lunches a day and delivers them to food insecure families. Stocked with more than 300 sack lunches a day and a core of volunteers to help pack them, Monday through Friday, the great-grandma to 15 grandchildren stepped up last summer to help deliver 6,851 meals! Phyliss gets the items from Coastal Harvest, the supplier for the local food banks and accepts money donations to cover the cost of the food. She estimates that the program will have delivered around 15,000 lunches during this summer. Wow, she certainly is a GREAT grandmother!
