Help me give my students meal options when they are hungry, like the Quaker Oatmeal for breakfast.

My Students

The majority of the population my school serves is experiencing generational poverty. Many of them come from single parent families. These students have little exposure to academics. Many young children can only sing the ABC song from memory; however, are unable to identify individual letters or their sounds not to mention a quarter, nickle or dime.

I want to expose them to fun learning opportunities.

My students are developmentally delayed in some areas like communication and learn in concrete ways. I teach the intensive students that are scoring the lowest in our school, and they usually need a variety of presentations with oral being the least. Every student deserves to find interest in learning.

My Project

I just want to ensure my kiddos are well fed before, during, and after the school day! Often, I am heartbroken at the site of students being turned away from breakfast because they arrived too late. Breakfast, being the most important meal of the day, leads to better performance not only academic but developmental overall.

Students who are hungry tend to frustrate easily, displaying a lack of focus.

I want to give them a warm bowl of Quaker Oatmeal and use Grandma's Homestyle Oatmeal Raisin Cookies as incentives during the instructional day. Students can take home some security of a meal over the weekend, even if it is just Quaker Oatmeal and Grandma's Homestyle Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. The Mini M&M's and Swidish Fish will also be reinforcers for positive actions.
