It’s no mystery that food is necessary for survival. But for growing kids, access to nutritious food is critical to their overall development during childhood years.
Studies show that children from homes that lack consistent access to food are more likely to experience development impairments in areas like language, motor skills, and behavior. And they’re more likely to have lower test scores and repeat grades.
Your support ensures at-risk children will receive the nutritious food they need to grow, engage in school, and thrive.
And it will especially help children during the summer months, when there are no school meal programs. Thank you for your continued support!
