73-year-old woman spent her summer bringing lunch to low-income kids
Phyllis Shaughnessy, a 73-year-old retired great-grandmother spent every weekday of her summer giving lunches to low income kids in Grays Harbor County, Washington.
King 5 reported that Shaughnessy committed to doing this because she didn't want kids to miss out on free or reduced meals just because school wasn't in session.
She started the program called Green Lantern Lunches in response to a change in a grant that had previously served summer lunches for qualified students.
Shaughnessy decided to take matters into her own hands, along with a group of volunteers, making more than 200 lunches per day, bringing food directly to low income students on Monday through Friday. The group gathers at the Green Lantern Pub -- a local restaurant that kindly lends their kitchen to the team.
The group successfully delivered more than 7,000 meals total in this summer alone.
