Ms. Leonard from Washington DC DC is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Feed My Students

My students need to have energy in order to complete the challenging tasks of my class! My students are often food-insecure and are coming to school without having eaten.

My Students

I teach in an urban charter network in which 100 percent of the students come from low income families. My students have big dreams for the post-high school lives, but do not have access to all of the resources that they need to succeed. In my classroom are potential future politicians, lawyers, artists, doctors, and scientists, but they all need to learn how to make the jump from high school to their future career.

As their teacher, I feel that it is my responsibility to provide them with the tools that they need to acquire the skills necessary for admission and success in college and beyond.

My Project

I often notice that my students are lethargic, irritable, or low energy throughout the day. Upon questioning, it became clear that many of my students are coming to school without eating. I teach urban students at the height of their adolescence--it is imperative that they receive healthy food at some point during the day!

Your donation will make it possible for my food-insecure students to receive snacks like granola bars, pretzels, and fruit snacks throughout the day.

In the past, I have funded these snacks myself, but they are consumed so quickly, so I am constantly running out. I will continue to personally purchase food for my students, but I would really appreciate it if you could help me keep my classroom stocked throughout the year!
