A third-grader from Howell is making a big difference.
Eight-year-old Cayden Taipalus was upset when he saw a child refused a hot lunch at his elementary school cafeteria because his lunch account was in arrears.
Instead, the child was served a sandwich with fruit and milk, the alternative provided free by Howell school policy when a student's overdue lunch balance reaches $5.
Amber Peters is Cayden's mother. She said he came home asking how he could help.
