Mrs. Hans from Camden NJ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Feeding Our Families

Help me give my students life sustaining food. We need a refrigerator and freezer to keep donated foods fresh and available to them.

My Students

This school is located in one of the most impoverished cities in the state. There were 38.3% of the cities population with incomes below the poverty level in 2016. 34.45% of children ages 5-17 in Camden are living in poverty. The meals the students receive in school may be the only meals they receive that day. Our students want to succeed but need help with the basics. Poverty and hunger should not be what keeps our children from meeting their full potential.

Food insecurity is a real problem for our families.

Our building is very lucky to receive donations from the local food pantry to support our families. We do, however, need help with the infrastructure to ensure the donations we receive are adequately maintained. Let’s eliminate one obstacle these children have!

My Project

Students that have access to nutritional food have one less impediment on their road to success. There are many potential roadblocks that prevent our children from reaching their goals but the availability of monthly food supplies reduces one impediment.

A refrigerator and freezer will allow us to store donated foods.

When we receive donations we have no place to store them nor keep them cold. Many donations arrive frozen and need to be kept at zero degrees or below and refrigerated items at 40 degrees to ensure that the foods remains safe.

Food and proper nutrition provide our students with the energy they need to be successful.
