My Students

We have an incredible student population! Our students are hard working, kind, empathetic, and passionate about learning. Our district has great disparities in economic status and for those who are at a disadvantage, there are many barriers to learning. The students who you will be helping qualify for free and reduced lunch but because our district only has approximately 15% students who receive free and reduced lunch, we do not offer breakfast services.

The biggest barrier for many students to be successful is not having adequate food at home.

Our school does not offer a breakfast program and therefore, many students come to school hungry. The budget for staff to buy breakfast items for students was completely cut to nothing. By donating and supporting this campaign, you will be ensuring all students start their school day with food and are therefore ready to learn!

My Project

Students come to student services to receive breakfast items as many of them cannot afford breakfast. By helping our students start their day with a full belly, you will ensure their academic success. If one is hungry, they cannot learn at full capacity. Since our school does not provide a breakfast option, this gives all students the food they need.

Our school tries to have enough food available for students who report that their parents cannot afford breakfast or dinner.

The provided snack mixes, granola bars and bags of chips are sometimes the only food students have other than lunch. Lunch is provided through federal money but there is not a breakfast program at our school.
