About Meals of Hope - Feeding program
Lunch at school does more than fill an empty belly - it helps fuel brains to learn!
Why is our feeding program so important?
Most of our students are from low-income families, some from single parent families and many walk long distances to school. Over 80% of our students do NOT bring a lunch to school because their family can only afford two (or fewer) meals a day for their families.
We strive to provide nutrition-packed lunches for our students DAILY. The feeding program has improved our students' overall health, as well as their school performance and test scores.
Our goal is to fund our expanded feeding program for 2019.
Every dollar makes a difference - $1 will feed 3 children for a week!
*We have the added benefit of employing to mothers to cook & serve our lunches. Therefore empowering two women to help care for their families.
