Research has shown that a lack of food can affect children physically, mentally and emotionally. These children get sick more often, test lower in math and reading and can experience anxiety and depression.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 17 million children live in households struggling to put enough food on the table. This includes many families in Marshall. Of Marshall students, 36% are eligible for free or reduced price lunches through the National School Lunch Program. The state average is 14%.
The National School Lunch Program helps out during the week,
but what about when students go home for the weekend? We bridge this gap by sending home a bag of nutritious snacks with students.
“My child has enjoyed the ability to receive some of her favorite snacks and try what may become some new favorites. While I watched her go through her bag, I was reminded of how she went through her Christmas stocking! This program is wonder- ful in our eyes. Thank you to all who make it happen. We wouldn’t change a thing.” - Marshall Food4Kids Parent
