The Hunger Problem
This is one of the highest rates in the nation. Greensboro and High Point rank #1 for food insecurity in the United States. Studies have shown that when students do not eat on the weekend, it can take up to Wednesday of the next week after students have eaten for two days at school to begin to learn at the same rate as their peers who had access to nutrition during the weekend. There are also other issues that arise when hunger is present. Ultimately, our goal is to find a way to help feed children and families in need year-round. Our desire is to change the hunger statistics in Guilford County by providing food and hope for every child.
