1 in 5 Hoosier children do not have enough to eat to be healthy. Teachers know this is true, as some of their students come to school on Monday morning too hungry to learn.
It’s a big problem, and it calls for a big response.
Thank you for your support on Giving Tuesday! Your support will help feed Hoosier children through the holidays and beyond. We are very pleased to announce that this year we met and exceeded our goal of 7,500 BackSacks on #GivingTuesday. The total amount for #GivingTuesday donations this year was enough to provide 13,875 BackSacks for Hoosier children in need. These funds will help ensure children don’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from, between school lunch on Friday and school breakfast Monday morning.
