Our awesome project aims to feed over 640 kids at Our Public School. We have 645 students in our school that come from middle-low income families and are always looking to have healthy and nutritious snacks and food such as apples, carrots, and other fruits and veggies. We work hard as a team to feed the students but have found that the food is gobbled up quite quickly due to hunger. When the children are faced with an option of a granola bar vs an apple, the children choose the apple but fresh produce is quite pricey for us to provide to kids. We would love to be able to feed the students so that they are able to learn, grow and develop healthy lifestyles because we feel its important that they are provided these healthy options even if their families are unable to provide it to them, at least we can!
