Help me give my students healthy snacks to help curb their hunger so they can concentrate on education.
I serve a lot of high needs students from low-income families in middle school. They are constantly hungry and saying they didn't get breakfast or can't afford lunch. They work hard and are trying to raise their skills to better themselves.
One student today came in and said he couldn't focus because he was so hungry, I gave him my granola bar.
This happens multiple times in each class. My para and I each purchase at least one box of some type of healthy snack but the needs of the students are too great for our resources.
Every day I would guess you get up, get ready for work and eat a healthy breakfast. Many of my students do not have this option. Focusing and learning are very difficult when they are hungry. It breaks my heart to say we are out of snacks for the week.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Each year this need is more and more prevalent. Middle school is a time when students are really growing and are hungry almost all the time. Thank you for your assistance.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
