My students need snacks in the afternoon to compensate from the long wait from an early lunch and to hold them over until they go home in the afternoon after an extended day!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach 20 wonderful, enthusiastic innovators! Some of my students are homeless, some live with extended families and others come from single parent households. Regardless of their background or socio-economic standing, they each hold a spot in my heart and though they have been challenged with various learning and social and personal adversities, they each have persevered and are striving to be the BEST they can be! My students are part of a turn-around model this year where they are being challenged with academic rigor, learning to collaborate, communicate, show empathy, self-discipline, perseverance, and how to be creative!
Children cannot learn without their basic needs being met first. Hunger is an essential need. When students tummies are satisfied their brains are ready to acquire knowledge. My kids are always happy when they have snacks in the classroom because unfortunately many do not receive complete meals when they go home. Some don’t even have access to healthy foods. Healthy snacks plus happy children equates to great creators and innovators! This donation will not only benefit my students physically but it will stimulate their minds as well. Healthy snacks can restore the energy our students use to work and play hard!
