Raising Children Who Care; A Conversation with Lois Brandt

Family/Child (Books)

Thursday, May 31st, join Loaves & Fishes for “Raising Children Who Care; A conversation with Lois Brandt, award-winning author of Maddi’s Fridge.” This is an opportunity for parents and adults to learn how to talk to kids about childhood hunger and poverty while instilling important lessons in friendship, empathy, and helping others. In her colorful story book, Maddi’s Fridge, best friends Sofia and Maddi live in the same neighborhood, go to the same school, and play in the same park, but while Sofia’s fridge at home is full of nutritious food, the fridge in Maddi’s house is empty. With warmth and humor, Ms. Brandt tackles a difficult but important topic while offering ways for you to help your child recognize that a friend or classmate may be experiencing hunger and poverty and how to help friends who may have empty refrigerators. On Thursday, May 31st, Ms. Brandt will speak to parents and adults at a luncheon at Jubilee Hall in Myers Park United Methodist Church, 1501 Queens Rd. 11:30am-1:00pm. A limited number of copies of Maddi’s Fridge will be available for purchase. Tickets are $10 at Title Sponsor of the event is Publix Super Markets.
