Teens, Hunger and Poverty: An ongoing discussion

As students head back to school it’s important for us to remember that ” nearly half of the nation’s children between the ages of 5 and 17 attend schools in communities where a large chunk of families are struggling to get by” (Source: Huffington Post).  One of our ongoing issues of focus is that of teens and poverty. Here are a selection of posts what we have already done below, and we will be doing more because we here at TLT feel like this is one of the greatest issues facing our teens today.
