At year end we are thinking about how we can make greater impact in lives of the 1000’s of children we serve. Bottom line is better grades = better foods. We know that studies show that trauma results from not knowing week after week if you will not have anything to eat on certain days or times of day.
https://www.livestrong.com/article/508170-how-does-eating-healthy-affect-your-grades/We serve two high schools and two middle schools at Jeffco Eats. Those over 2000 students include homeless children and hungry children. What if we could bring enough foods each week that they would no longer have to say, “I lack 3 meals a day. ” And further their grades went up !!! Help us win this battle of hunger
