My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I ask them, "Who is the best class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at an inner city school where 100 percent of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend from the food pantry that I run in our school for our families. Despite so many hardships, 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 Project

These foods will help me fill backpacks that I send home to the children’s homes on the weekends. These children do not have enough food in their homes to make it through the weekends. For most of these children they only get the two meals that they get at school during the day. Help me help them please. Hunger lives closer than you think and no child should ever know hunger in our country. Please do not let them feel the hunger in their bellies because there isn’t food in their homes. Your kindness can go a long way!
