Nourishing the Minds of Students

Help me give my students the essential snacks they need to keep their brains high functioning and keep them alert!

My Students

Our students are learning to become the new leaders of our society. They are learning skills like respect, manners, and leadership. They are wonderful students that love learning and love being at school (for the most part!).

There are some students in the school that come from inner city locations and can't afford some of the same things as others kids like lunches, school bags and electronics.

It would be great if all our kids were on a level playing field to start; then, they could concentrate on learning and not worry about what they would use to do their homework, or what they are going to eat today.

My Project

A lot of the students at my school are considered food insecure and need a little help in that area. The items that you help supply will be for their physical nourishment, which in turn, will help them stay alert during class.

With this supply of snacks, the students will be more able to stay alert during class and become stronger learners.

Too many of our students need this nourishment just to stay alert and focused in class. Without it, they become tired, less focused, and their grades begin to suffer.
