Winter Break Food Drive
As part of our mission to bridge the achievement gap between kids from low and high socioeconomic families, we combine our creativity and our practicality to make the biggest difference. One easily overlooked factor that contributes to lower academic performance is food insecurity.
Food Insecurity: When households are uncertain of having, or unable to acquire, enough food to meet the needs of all their members.*
Over 20% of the nation’s kids live in food insecure homes. When you’re hungry, or anxious about where your next meal will come from, paying attention in class or finishing your homework is way harder to do. Kids deserve stability so that they can remain carefree kids – their only responsibility to do well in the classroom.
