Project Sandwich - Quarter 4 Countdown

Help me give my students a reliable food source. The beef jerky, fruit bars, fruit cups, noodles, chips, and cereal are all welcomed by up to 32 students each and every Friday at our school.

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

By helping me with this project, you are allowing us to purchase enough food to get students without a reliable food source a complete breakfast and lunch for each day of the weekend.

Hungry students in middle school can't always get themselves to a local food bank.

With your support, we can send these students home each Friday with 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches. That not only fills their stomachs, but lets them know others care. It is a hand-up, not a hand out. Not only do these students benefit, the students who help prepare the bags are learning great empathy and leadership skills.
