Kyle Thomas is a 10-year-old with frighteningly good diction who hates to see food wasted.
Thomas attends Glen Arden Elementary School in Arden and on Nov. 6 came before the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners to outline his plan for ending the unneccessary dumping of perfectly good cafeteria food, alleviating world hunger and cutting down on waste. In a word: “Refrigeration.”
The video of Thomas’s speech, courtesy of Buncombe County TV manager Judy Rhew, suggests that the boy has a knack for problem-solving that our elected officials might learn from.
