My Students

Help our scholars to grow their brains by filling their tummies! Some of my students get onto the bus as early as 5 am, it is a very long day and they get really hungry.

I teach 26 bright and beautiful children in a high need area of New York.

While most of my students receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch, some of our families are financially unable to give their children snacks for the day and my students are often hungry throughout the day.

My Project

These snacks would allow our students to have enough energy to keep on learning throughout the day and GROW THEIR BRAINS! If we can make sure they get a snack, they will be able to better focus and really build the fundamental knowledge necessary for them to go onto the next grade and continue to be successful throughout school.

This project is important because our students are given very few breaks in life.

And if we can give them the smallest thing like an afternoon snack they will be able to keep up their energy and learn even more in the exhausting afternoons.
