No Child Left Hungry
My students need food service materials so they can eat healthy, hot breakfasts in the classroom if they miss breakfast and learn about the science behind healthy food choices at the same time.
The students I teach are middle school science students at an alternative 6-12 school in a high poverty area. Many of my students are at-risk and need some additional supports throughout the year.
The students I teach enroll in our alternative school for a variety of reasons, but in our school everyone's goal is clear: success.
My students respond best to visual and hands-on learning activities and their engagement and participation truly thrive when it comes to these types of learning modalities.
Studies say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast gives you energy and helps you start your day off right. But what happens when students get to school late, after breakfast has ended? They slowly walk their tired, hungry bodies from class to class-falling asleep, complaining of stomachaches, or maybe asking a friend for an unhealthy bag of chips to snack on.
As a science teacher I want to not only fill my student’s minds with info about healthy food choices and how to make healthy foods, but also feed their stomachs with nourishing foods to keep them awake, full, and ready for the day.
This project provides materials to facilitate food and drink for students in the classroom should they come in tired and hungry.
