A blog about school lunches
Fri, 22 Jun 2012 7:00p.m.
In Scotland, a nine-year-old girl called Martha started blogging about school lunch.
Like Jamie Oliver, she was interested in what she and other kids were being fed at school.
Was it good food? And if not, why not?
The lunches were on the somewhat miserable end of school fare and as Martha blogged about them, more and more people wrote to her with their experience of their school lunches.
But someone said to Martha, “you're lucky you're even getting a school lunch”.
And suddenly, a fundraising effort exploded into life.
Never Seconds, Martha's blog, became a focal point for a fundraising effort to feed children not fortunate enough to get even a really bad school lunch.
It's funding an entire building project in Malawi - a kitchen fully-funded to make thousands of meals a year.
And now Martha wants some help from children and classes New Zealand.
Watch the video for the full story.
