There are a lot of students, about 60%, who get free or reduced lunch at their Durham school. Since school is closed today for the teacher rally in downtown Raleigh, some very good-natured peeps are making sure those kids still get to eat. The Durham YMCA was packed on Monday with volunteers who donated and packed lunches that the students got to take home with them yesterday. They weren’t the only ones who had these students in mind, there were dozens of groups performing the tasks all across the state. Many parents were part of this movement, wanting to make sure the teachers could go and fight for their rights guilt-free knowing their students were well taken care of.
