Did you know the Foundation's Basic Student Needs program works to lower barriers to academic success? A core initiative of the program is food aid, which provides free breakfasts, snacks and lunches at many District schools. Nutritious meals and learning go hand-in-hand, and students who eat breakfast and lunch are better able to focus on their studies.
Thanks to generous donors like you, the program provided more that 17,000 breakfasts, snacks and lunches during the 2017-18 school year. By the numbers, the program provided:
Grab & Go Breakfasts: 4,201 (an increase of 65% from 2016-17)
Breakfast Bars: 12,096
Poverty is the single most disruptive condition affecting a child's education. YOU can make a difference in the life of a child and their ability to learn, grow and thrive!
Thank you for standing up for hungry kids. Your gift, no matter the size, will ensure no child in our schools comes to class hungry.
