We have put together a special issue of Bridge Ink featuring interview stories written by teens who participated in The Interview Project during the summer of 2022. This project required teens to interview members of Lunch Break—a nonprofit that freely provides food, clothing, life skills, and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond—and document the stories they want to preserve. Project Write Now has been working with Lunch Break for many years, and we are so proud to have our teen writers share their stories.
