Project Sandwich - Spring Snack Sacks

Help me give my students a reliable food source each weekend. Not only does it feed the hunger, it also lets them know others care.

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. 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

Each Friday, or the last school day of the week, students who do not have a reliable food source take a snack sack home. Each bag contains food for two breakfasts and two lunches. Items such as granola, chicken salad kits, fruit bars, and jerky go into each bag.

The Snack Sacks have been going home each week since August 2018, and we cannot keep it up without the generous support from others like you.

When you donate to this project, you not only help provide a reliable food source, you let a child know that he or she is important.
