Ms. Pereira from Bronx NY is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Food for Fuel!

My students need food because many times they come to school hungry and some will not have anything to eat when they leave.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. My students are all different types of learners and have various backgrounds. I have students who do not speak English, students with disabilities, and some students who are homeless.

I teach at a Title I school in the Bronx, New York where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive food and clothing from the school's charity drives. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

These snacks will help my students focus during the day by giving them energy and some motivation. Many of my students come to school hungry in the morning because they didn't eat breakfast at home.

The granola bars, and other snacks will give them something to munch on and soothe their hunger which will allow them to focus on work.

Also, many students stay in after school programs that do not provide snacks for the students, so they are several hours since lunch without eating. Again, these snacks will provide some fuel to get through the remaining part of the day.

Many times the students ask me if I have a snack they can take home to eat later or share with a sibling. Having these snacks on hand in my classroom will ensure that the students can have some comfort in knowing that they can get some type of nourishment before and after lunch, which for many is their only meal of the day!
