Josette Duran of Albuquerque, New Mexico, told KOAT that at first, she was confused when her son asked her to pack two lunches every day for school.

“He said, ‘No, Mom. It’s for this little boy at school. He sits by himself and all he eats is a fruit cup,'” Duran said.

Duran later found out that the boy’s single mother had lost her job and had been struggling financially.

“This hits home for me, because a few years ago, me and my son were homeless. I was living in my car. I was washing him in bathrooms. We didn’t have food,” Duran said.
