Closing the Meal Gap

Closing the meal Gap
According to Feeding America, one in six children in Indiana are food insecure*. Students that are hungry have been shown to be less engaged in school, affecting their performance. Free or reduced breakfasts and lunches from schools are critical in providing much needed nutrition to food insecure children, but sometimes this isn’t enough. School hunger relief programs can help feed students and their families, even after the school day ends. Take time to consider whether a program like this is something your administration could implement.
