When the lunch bell sounds at Perry Primary students make their way into its cafeteria for a hot meal.
But not every pair of little feet that walk those hallways is headed for a hearty meal when they head home for the weekend.
"It's not fair that one child has all of these benefits of life and another child has so little, so we do everything we can to make up that gap," Perry Primary's Principal Elgin Mayfield said.
It's why Perry Primary became one three Houston County Schools to offer nutritious food over the weekend to those who might otherwise go without.
Surprised to know hunger is a problem in Houston? Principal Mayfield says he's seen the issues for years.
"There's some wonderful professionals who live in Houston County, and there are also a high number of poverty families that live in Houston County," Mayfield said.
