1 in 6 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.
For every $5 received this Giving Tuesday, Gleaners is able to provide a child with 7 food items + 1 bonus item through the BackSacks program. With your support, we are well on our way toward our goal of providing 7,500 BackSacks to children in our community. 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.
