TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students healthy snack foods so they're well-nourished for each day of school.
I am blessed with 17 first grade students in my classroom who are eager to learn and explore the world around them. However, my students come from many different backgrounds which sometimes makes it difficult for students to be exposed to grade-level content at home. Students come from homes that are unable to provide basic supplies, not to mention school supplies. They are made up of a diverse set of backgrounds and include English Language Learners, special education students and those receiving free or reduced-price lunches. Some of my students may even experience being homeless during the school year. Homelessness is an experience that individual people have, rather than a label. It is my goal as their teacher to provide them with basic necessities.
Seventy percent of our students receive free or reduced-price meals.
My students are very grateful for your support!
This proposed project will help provide students in my classroom with necessary snack foods such as pretzels, Cheez-It crackers, goldfish crackers, and fruit snacks to nourish their young minds throughout the school day. This request is for snack foods for students to eat during the school day when students are feeling hungry. The snack foods will also provide students with healthier alternative snack foods rather than chips or candy that kids sometimes bring to school.
Food is a basic need that many people have on a regular basis, but for many of my families it can sometimes be a luxury.
This project will address the urgent needs of students by providing snack foods such as pretzels, Cheez-It crackers, goldfish crackers, and fruit snacks so they can be well-nourished with healthy snacks at school, equipped to learn, and set up for success in the classroom.
