Chieko Kuribayashi: Saving Communities One Meal at a Time *RERUN
Chieko Kuribayashi is the director of a non-profit. 5 years ago, it opened a "children's cafeteria" to serve kids that, whether for financial reasons or because of their parents' busy work schedules, aren't getting enough to eat at home. It currently operates 4 cafeterias in the Toshima area of Tokyo, and carries out activities all over Japan. Neighbors used to know each other's business -- we hear how one homemaker has embraced that old-fashioned "busybody" spirit to rebuild community bonds.
