HUNGRY KIDS HUSD
Food & Nutrition
|Hungry Kids Need Your Help To Become Effective Learners!Fortunately, programs exist that feed children during the school day. But what about on weekends? That’s where we come in. The Hungry Kids Project sends HUSD children home with food packs of food for the weekend. With adequate nutrition, kids can return to school on Monday well nourished and ready to learn.
Inspired by the vision of Carm Staker, the founder of HUSD Hungry Kids, we serve the children in the Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD) that have been recommended by school staff as students that may not have access to adequate weekend meals. Prior to the pandemic, 62.5% of the children in the ten HUSD Schools were eligible for free and reduced meals at school. That number has only gone up! The Hungry Kids project goes a BIG step further, by sending these children home on weekends with food packs filled with healthy food. Confidentiality is strictly observed.
