Paula’s Put On: #HashtagLunchbag Puts A Social Media Twist On Ending Hunger


/ January 10, 2014

#HashtagLunchbag is a movement that everybody should join. Started by Ajay Relan, Will “JDubb” Smith and JD McElroy in Los Angeles living room a year ago, the hunger-conquering mission has spread to some 40 cities across America thanks to social media.

“The unfortunate thing about homeless people is they weren’t homeless before that,” notes Will “JDubb” Smith. “You could end up being that person, and to actually acknowledge someone that gets overlooked on a day-to-day basis and see how much they appreciate it, is amazing.”

Paula’s Put On host Paula Miranda sits down with the #HashtagLunchbag founders to talk about how they got started and what you can do to help fight hunger and homelessness in your community.
