My Students

100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunches at school. Since school closure in mid-March due to the pandemic, students are missing out on many of their essential needs. Students are dealing with many life changes and many essential needs may go lacking!

My Project

Hunger and proper hygiene is the biggest challenge that many students have been faced with during this nationwide pandemic. Students and families are going through the most challenging times in their lives.

Many students are going without nutritious breakfast and lunches that they are normally provided.

In addition, many students personal hygiene needs are likely not being met. With many families out of work and struggling financially, the essential needs of many students are going lacking. Please help to fill the appetites, as well as, the personal hygiene needs of these students!
