According to a 2013 survey conducted by Share Our Strength and APCO Insights, low-income families report tight household budgets, which make it difficult to provide nutritious food when school is out. In fact, a quarter of low-income parents surveyed worry that their children do not have enough to eat between school lunch and breakfast the following day. Our afterschool  meals rograms connects children with the free healthy food they need in a safe, supervised location. For some kids, this is their best opportunity to access a healthy meal after the school day ends.

Evidence suggests that by providing children healthy meals, school programs realize an increase in attendance and improvements in student behavior.

​For more information please call Marvin Jones at 870.308.0616 or Shelia Hoffman 708.250.1988.

For many low-income families, providing healthy food at the end of a school day adds stress to an already limited family budget.
