An Apple A Day Keeps Hunger At Bay

My students need a variety of healthy foods to eat for breakfast when they come in hungry or to take home in the evenings and on the weekends.

My Students

Our students attend a Title I School in South Carolina. All seven hundred and forty of our amazing students receive free lunch. Therefore, most have limited resources at home and have many hardships to overcome. What they receive at school (food, clothing, love, and a quality education) is of the utmost importance.

Every day our amazing students come to school not just ready to learn, but excited to learn!

It is a privilege to watch them learn and grow at school. Many then take what they have learned home to teach their younger siblings, and in some cases teach their parents, how to read or even how to speak English. Their love of learning is contagious!

My Project

We know that if we are hungry, then we are not going to be our best, do our best, or learn our best. It is important for our students to have the essentials such as a healthy snack or breakfast or afternoon snack to eat.

Can you imagine coming to school hungry every day?

That is the reality for many of our students. Many of these same students go home to empty refrigerators and cabinets on a daily basis as well. Your generous donation will help fill their tummies when they get to school and give them a snack to take home to eat that evening. For some, that snack may be the only food they eat until they get back to school the next day. By requesting foods such as peanuts, pop tarts, chips, and cookies/crackers, students have an easy and simple on the go but healthy snack to make it through the day or even sometimes for dinner. Capri Suns are always a hit and give students that extra boost they need. Thank you in advance for helping fill this most essential of needs for our students.
