As early as the 3rd grade, Audrey did not like seeing students stressed and pressured to find a teacher, principle, or student for lunch money. She worried with this year after year until she entered the 8th grade in 2004 making her mind up that she would do something about it. The humanitarian in Audrey said, “no one should go without a meal, this day in time.” When she was 13 years old, in 8th grade she devised a plan that would solve the problem.
Audrey Cloyd founded a meal service program for students called, Food for Thought out of genuine concern for students at Science Hill High School when they did not have a pre-packed lunch or lunch money (for whatever reason) to purchase a traditional lunch. Most high schools have a “no-charge” policy; leaving no back-up plan when students do not have lunch provisions.
