In the 2017-2018 school year alone, Food for Learning programs provided 1,076,531 meals and snacks through student nutrition programs. All proceeds of the Feed the Meter campaign will be returned to the schools in the communities where the funds were raised and will be used to purchase groceries for the various programs in those communities.
The goal of student nutrition programs is to ensure that all students have daily access to breakfast, lunch and/or snacks while at school. When students eat better, they are engaged in their learning, experience a sense of belonging at school and develop lifelong healthy eating habits.
By donating to Food for Learning this holiday season you are helping to provide food to local students. Students in our area arrive at school hungry for a variety of reasons – poverty, rushed mornings, long bus rides, etc. Regardless of the reason, the aim is to minimize hunger faced by children and youth in our community. The support received through the Feed the Meter campaign makes this possible.
