Project Sandwich - A Summer Stash

Help me give my students a small stash of food for summer. Each child will get a prepacked box of healthy treats and snacks when you help fund this project.

My Students

Our middle school serves nearly 800 students in grades sixth through eighth. At least a third of these students qualify for free lunch, and many in this group are currently homeless. The school provides nutritious breakfasts and lunches Monday through Friday during the school year. But what do these children eat Saturdays and Sundays?

Children experiencing homelessness don't always have someone to take them to a shelter or food bank.

Many teens and pre-teens who are experiencing homelessness often wouldn't feel comfortable asking strangers for help, even if they knew who to ask. Project Sandwich was started by a local teen who saw many of her peers tired and stressed from lack of food. She decided to do something about it, so she and her family started filling lunch bags for those students to have for the weekend. Her idea was a big success at her school, so she wants it to be a part of every school in our community. I, along with my Speech and Debate students, hope to make Project Sandwich a part of our school this year, and we can only do it with your support.

My Project

Project Sandwich has been at our school since August of this school year, and because of donors, we have been able to send home more than 120 meals each weekend of the school year. The students look forward to their Friday Bags of two breakfasts and two lunches, and really enjoy things like Jerky, Spam, Chicken Salad, Nuts, and Fruits.

The last day of school is not a happy day for many; they know they are not going to get a school breakfast or lunch.

With your support, each child enrolled in Project Sandwich will go home with a Summer Stash of healthy food items.
