Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

These cookies, chips, candy bars, soda and other snacks will help students stay focused because they eat lunch so early, but leave school so late. I have been trying to keep students with something to snack on until they get home, but now I'm out of funds. We all know that students learn best when they are focused and not distracted by things such as hunger. Students lose focus and get upset when they are hungry, and I don't want them to lose interest in learning because of hunger. Your donations will help a lot of students, and I know with your help we can make this a success.

Hunger shouldn't be a reason students can't succeed in school, and with your help, we can make sure students stay focused on learning, not hungry during school.

Help feed these babies' bellies and I'll help feed their minds.

Grades 6-8
