PB&J

A little girl with a big heart is ensuring none of her classmates will ever go hungry by collecting jars of her favorite food combination, peanut butter and jelly.

Eva Chapman has donated 1,033 jars of peanut butter and jelly to nine schools including her own -- Spruce Creek Elementary School in Port Orange, Florida. 

"It's just been such a wonderful outpouring of support," mom Nicole Chapman of Florida told Good Morning America. "For whatever reason, this really just touched people and moved them. I'm very proud of her. She has a huge heart."

Eva, a soon-to-be first grader at her school, launched her project in mid-April. Eva told her mom she wanted to have a food drive after learning a fellow classmate might not have enough to eat at home.

"She got fixated on [another child] she went to school with," Chapman said. "It became apparent to me that [the child] didn't have a great home life. My advice to her was, 'Go ahead and love from afar because they don't have everything you have."

Chapman said her daughter's school offers free and reduced hot lunch to students whose families struggle financially. Eva knows this, but wondered what those kids have to eat when they're at home.

While Eva initially hoped to secure 10,000 jars -- you gotta love kids' enthusiasm -- mom said the big-hearted little girl is thrilled with the outcome.

 

Thanks to her generosity, strangers as far as Canada have donated jars to the 6-year-old's cause.
