Why fundraise?

Currently, 18% of children in the U.S. don’t have the nourishment they need to learn and be well. Students can’t focus and learn if they don’t have access to nutritious foods. Food is as essential to learning as books, desks, and school buses—but too many kids are going without.

When kids also learn how to grow food in school gardens and prepare delicious, nutritious, and culturally relevant foods, they develop a sense of agency in choosing nourishing food. Together, access to free school meals and food education are key in shaping a more equitable future for all children.
