No student went hungry

An award-winning "hero" teacher in England spends each day preparing food for his students. So far, he's delivered 7,500 packed lunches. Zane Powles, who works for Western Primary School in the seaport of Grimsby, feared students might miss lunch while classes were cancelled during the pandemic. So he prepared 85 lunches each morning and walked 7.5 miles each day, making his rounds for 17 weeks in North East Lincolnshire.

The 48-year-old estimates that he carried roughly four tons of food during that time, but says it was "well worth it" after seeing the smiles on the kids' faces. He delivered lunches because "I needed to know if they were safe, if the kids were healthy, and if they had access to food."
