Second Harvest Food Bank of NE TN



“There is pretty solid evidence that children who are hungry are not able to focus, so they have a low attention span, behavioral issues, and discipline issues in the school. Having children who are well-fed and not hungry makes a difference in their individual performance, and also how much they are contributing to or disrupting the classroom situation.” 

                                      Sibylle Kranz, University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education
