Filling healthy bellies for success
Did you know research shows hungry kids are more likely to miss school and less likely to graduate high school? We were lucky to join the “Too Hungry to Learn” this month hosted by the Second Harvest Food Bank to collaborate across sectors and help bridge the achievement gap. With only 69% of students eligible for the free or reduced school lunch program participating in school lunch programs, we can encourage more families who are low income to take advantage and ensure school districts can maintain funding. Together, we can help ensure all kids get the nutrition they need to be able to excel in school. Find more data here.
