My students are hungry. If I'm given this grant I will be able to give students snacks to eat at the end of the day. When we have a long weekend or break from school I would be able to send extra food home with students who would normally go without. My students tend to be hungry all of the time; they need extra food and snacks to take home so they can eat. If given this grant, they wouldn't have to go without as often. Since I am the counselor I know which of my students are in more need of food. I also have teachers helping me since they see their classroom students more than I do. They can let me know if they have a student who is constantly wanting and needing food. Together we can work as a team to make sure our students have food. Students learn better when their bellies have food in them; when they don't have to wonder when the next time food will come their way.
