Jahzaire Sutton's story
Jahzaire was a 12 year old boy who who went to school and he seemed normal but at home he and his family were not able to afford food. Jahzaire and his family were starving. This effected his school work. When Jahzaire went to school the only thing he could think about was food and his mother. Jahzaire's mother would most of the time give up her food for her children. She would not eat so her children could have enough energy to last through the day. The NYC Coalition Against Hunger is helping feed Jahzaire family and they are doing something to end world hunger.
