What Can I Do about Hunger?
As a parent, we know you want your child to grow, thrive in school, and live
a happy life. To make sure your growing child is not distracted in school, there
are some ways to make sure they are full of energy before and during the school
day. Find out from your child’s teacher if breakfast is served in the classroom
or before school. You can also give them a healthy breakfast at home before they
go to school if you prefer.
Asking for help is key if you need it. The guidance counselor or parent
coordinator can connect you to services that help provide food for your family.
You can also talk to your doctor about what your family eats. The doctor can
check your child’s weight and growth, and tell you if your child needs to change
what they eat. Explore our materials on how you help keep your child hunger-free
so they are healthy and ready to learn below.
