Maddi's Fridge by Lois BrandtCan kids help combat food insecurity in children? Yes, says author Lois Brandt, and her picture book Maddi's Fridge shows them how. As a little girl Lois didn't know how to help when she discovered her best friend's family had no food to eat. As a grownup, she researched strategies and then penned Maddi's Fridge so today's kids wouldn't feel as helpless as she did. Publisher Flashlight Press donates 10% of this book's profits to help fight childhood hunger, and Lois waives her author visit fees to schools that organize food drives. Learn how to empower yourself and the kids in your life to combat food insecurity in children (and also a little about how to write a great picture book) by tuning in this week to this rebroadcast episode of The Studio with Cheryl and Lois Brandt.
