Seeing the signs of childhood hunger and the effects this has on children we stepped up to do something.
Many teachers say that a lot of their students rely on school meals as their primary source of nutrition.
More specifically, among those teachers, 80% say that these children are coming to school hungry one or more times each week.
Additionally, teachers are concerned about their students getting enough to eat during the summer months.
What are the effects of hunger in the classroom?
Inability to concentrate
Poor academic performance
Health problems like head and stomachaches.
The most common reason children are not eating breakfast is poverty, loss of employment and lack parental guidance.
Established in 2017 this program served a small number of about 35 families growing to over 250 families in less than 12 months.
We’re feeding their tummies, but the difference between this program and any other program out there along with food that goes home with children we always include an academic item, whether it’s activity pages and crayons or a book to read,” Because we feed their Tummies and the minds of our next generation!
Feeding the Tummies and the Minds of the next generation One Bag, One Weekend, One Child at a time......
