Vital Nutritious Snacks to Help Children Have Success!!!!

My students need healthy snacks (fruit snacks & jerky) to obtain nutrients to succeed in school.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Ours is a Title I school located in Kansas. The majority of our students are on a free or reduced-price lunch plan and many are English Language Learners. Though these kids might not have everything that others do, they come to school with great attitudes and minds like sponges that are ready to soak up any learning opportunity that is thrown their way.

Some of the students are homeless.

There are a lot of special needs students at the school. The neighborhood that the school resides in was hit by a tornado a few years ago. Some of the students live with grandparents or in single parent homes. A lot of the parents are unemployed due to the recession and the economy.

My Project

The vital snacks (fruit snacks & jerky) will help the children obtain the vitamins and minerals they need in order to be successful in school. The students do not have access to enough food at home. 90% of the kids are on free or reduced lunch status. There are homeless children at the school. It is hard for the students to concentrate when their stomachs are empty. They need the nutrients in order for them to focus on academics.

Healthy snacks will help the kids come to school prepared to learn and gain knowledge.

It is a big challenge for educators to help their children learn when their students say that they are hungry. If the kids are lacking food, they will not be willing or able to learn. They need the snacks.
