Salvador’s faith is one of the strongest you’ll ever see. But it’s even more amazing when you realize he is just six years old.

Salvador lives with his mother and sister in Mexico. His father, as Salvador puts it, “he is a bad man.” He does stop by to see them every once in a while, but he doesn’t do anything to help the family. Making ends meet, and taking care of the kids falls solely on his mother’s shoulders.

We can’t wait to see what Solanie accomplishes!

Remember the name Solanie Monaise.

What about Lunch? September 20, 2017

We’re growing! Over the past year, we’ve been hard at work expanding our school lunch program to help hungry kids succeed in school.
