All too often children go without food during school breaks and weekends. As a result, their attention spans in the classroom are shorter. By providing kids with food for the weekend, our organization is helping kids be more successful at school.
Local school administrators have high praise for our program. They are reporting higher rates of attendance and parents are more involved in school activities.
Take a look at the drawings below, submitted by students at the Head Start in Goldendale. The students explain, in their own words, their favorite items from the bag of food that they get each week.
