April, an average teenage girl, doesn't understand why her mother “strongly encourages” her to volunteer at the local food cupboard every week. She likes to help out, but the environment makes her sad. When her mother explains why it's important to confront a problem head on, April begins to relive an old memory, long-forgotten, of a terrible encounter in a grocery store when she was just a little girl. This ten minute dramatic monologue confronts the issue of poverty, and the need to be an active participant in fighting hunger.
