It’s our honor to introduce you to Elias - a gentleman who supports our efforts of transporting lunch supplies to the students of Engorika Primary School, Tanzania. Elias also sells sugar and has two children who attend school at Engorika. Let’s all give Elias a shoutout of love and applause for his dedication to so many students. Thank you Elias! Sending love your way ❤️
Our lunch programs in Tanzania are community run using locally sourced food. Our empathy presentations here in Charlotte teach students how they can impact students on the other side of the world. It’s amazing to watch our children connect to Tanzanian children. Truly beautiful.
It’s our privilege to introduce you to Ernest, our Tanzanian school lunch coordinator. We are so blessed to have him as part of our organization. He plays an important role in coordinating lunch for these beautiful students and brings so much joy to their day. Thank you Ernest!!!
Empathy in action hero, Patricia Moore via Yes Magazine: “Today, one of the leading exponents of experiential empathy is the U.S. product designer Patricia Moore, whose specialty is using empathy to cross the generational gulf. Her best-known experiment was in the late 1970s when, aged 26, she dressed up as an 85-year-old woman to discover what life was like as an elder. She put on makeup that made her look aged, wore fogged-up glasses so she couldn’t see properly, wrapped her limbs and hands with splints and bandages to simulate arthritis, and wore uneven shoes so she hobbled. She went on to become an influential campaigner for the rights of senior citizens, helping to get the Americans With Disabilities Act enacted as law.” Kids who grow up empathetic turn into empathetic adults who turn thoughts into action.
Love and kindness. It’s simple.

Fun Friday night in a neighbor's yard! 10 year old girls had a corn hole tourney to raise money for #thelunchproject - just $10 per entry or $20 per family. What an awesome, simple idea! They raised $300 and it was really fun! #cotswoldcharlotte #backyardfun #charity #teachthemyoung #spendsavegive #ilovecharlotte #ilovehouses #ilovecornhole

When I went to Tanzania, I made the mistake of asking while on a long drive when the safari would begin. Silly me quickly learned the long drive IS the safari. It's the journey. It's the adventure. A safari is NOT a destination. Years later, I'm glad to report I am STILL on the journey, with the greatest tribe ever. I am beyond giddy to spend this weekend watching our ridiculously cool youth put themselves into the adventure too. #FillTheBowl2017 #ShareYourBowl #TheLunchProject #BeTheChange #SJEYC #Adventure #Empathy
This is Sarah, the incredible heart, muscle, and brain behind our Global #Empathy Education program. As one of our longest-serving volunteers, she tirelessly teaches problem-solving and 21st century skills to thousands of kids in classrooms and community groups each year. Sarah is also a pivotal part of our Empathy Education Task Force, developing ways to put empathy into action across our community and around the world. And so, she is the first recipient of our Kikombe Mshikamano (Solidarity Cup ) Award! #BeTheChange #ShareYourBowl #CharlottesGotALot #TheLunchProject

There aren't really words to describe how it makes us feel that St. John's Episcopal Church in #CharlotteNC has chosen #TheLunchProject as the recipient for their Spring fundraiser. In March, the youth will fast for a day, sleep outside in a cardboard village, and learn more about life as a teen in Africa. They'll set up fundraising pages and knock on doors and send letters and tell our story all in an effort to spread empathy, help feed students, and make this world a place full of love and kindness. #YourVibeAttractsYourTribe #BeTheChange #EYCEmpathy #ShareYourBowl #AllYouNeedIsLove #SJEYC #FillTheBowlSJE
