Healthy Snacks for Hungry Scholars

My students need snacks, such as granola bars, that are portable and nutritious so they can focus on their homework and afterschool activities.

My Students

Welcome to a small class of hardworking scholars with very few resources! Our school is located in the heart of West Philadelphia, in one of the most impoverished and tight-knit communities I have ever witnessed.

There is so much heart, and so much grit in the students and families I am privileged to work with.

My goal is to provide these students with as much enrichment as I possibly can.

My students are enthusiastic about learning! They love reading, and each and every one of them come to school excited to learn and work. Please help us provide as many resources as we can to help them succeed.

My Project

Many of the students in our class have unreliable access to afterschool snacks that will help them make it through until dinner. Though our school provides all students with breakfast and lunch each day, many of my young learners leave school complaining of hunger pains. I almost never have anything that is portable for them to take with them to their afterschool care or home.

This project will fund snacks for every student, so they can focus on learning, not on where their next meal will be coming from.

This order is exclusively made up of nutritious snacks that are either portable or nonperishable.
