Hungry children have trouble concentrating, get more headaches and infections, are more likely to be hospitalized and are less likely to perform well on athletic fields and in classrooms. Child Hunger is a problem in communities where our schools are built. Often these families earn less than $2.00 a day. One donation of $500 can purchase, depending on current prices, 1 1/2 metric tons (1500 kg) of “grade 3” rice and feed 60 families for 30 days, or 5 families for an entire year. It is difficult for students to learn and retain information while hungry. Help us help them become better students. An educated community is an empowered community. Please donate today.
