Help me give my students healthy snacks because sometimes my kids miss breakfast and need a snack to keep them going through the morning.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day ready to learn and are excited to be there. Despite hardships at home, 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 students have big dreams and I want to help them learn so they can achieve all of their dreams. Every day I encourage students to share "Good Things" with me. These things can be small such as "I'm glad to be here," or they can be big such as "I am going to Texas."

I teach at a Title I school in the Mississippi Delta.

All students receive free breakfast and lunch. I can't even imagine what they see and hear on the streets every day. I want to make a difference in their life, no matter how small.

I want my students to know I care about them and what is happening in their life. I don't just care about what they are doing in my classroom, but at home as well.

My Project

Sometimes, my students are running late or they do not have anything to eat at home. Please help me provide them healthy snacks for when they miss breakfast.

Students can't focus in class if they are hungry.

My students get easily frustrated and unfocused if they are hungry. I want to have a safe place in my room for when students need a pick me up to get them started or help them through the day that they can have a quick snack and then get back on task.

My students have showed tremendous growth this year. I do not want hunger to be a problem when I can help them out.
