Ben set up the social enterprise Fill Their Lunchbox and in this episode shares his journey. We learn about his childhood and hard times during high school, losing a friend during the Christchurch earthquakes and his resulting depression and how all these factors led to his being inspired to start Fill Their Lunchbox which not only feeds children who wouldn't get a lunch otherwise but also works with people from Odyssey House (recovering from drug and alcohol addictions) preparing the lunches to help them find their purpose.
