In rural Tennessee, a new way to help hungry children: A bus turned bread truck

by Eli Saslow

Children make their way off the bus after eating on the Lunch Express. Four buses deliver a total of 350 lunches each weekday in the rural areas surrounding Greeneville, Tenn. The bus visits trailer parks and housing developments. Children in these areas are often stranded in the summer, and, for some of them, the meal on the bus is the only reliable meal of the day.
