Brains and Bellies Work Together

Help me give my students healthy snacks that help them to focus more on their work than their bellies.

My Project

My students come from a rural neighborhood where 90% are poverty stricken. Despite their socio-economic status, they are driven, resilient, and they persevere through some of the most unimaginable situation.

Unfortunately, many of my students eat the majority of their meals at school.

This project will help me to provide food for those who may come late and miss breakfast and an afternoon snack for those who are hungry before dismissal.

I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to education. Its difficult to get a child to focus in class when their basic needs are not being met.

Grades 3-5
