FOOD FOR THOUGHT
No child can concentrate, learn or achieve on an empty stomach.
The growls of hunger are louder than any teacher's voice.
BACKPACK- Starfish & Weekend Fuel Bag: Backpacks crammed with nutritious food for students to take home to their families every weekend and holidays.
BREAKFAST CLUBS - Serving breakfast every morning to hungry students.
LUNCH - Providing a nutritious meal to students who come to school without a packed lunch.
SNACKS - Offering nutritious and energy-producing snacks throughout the long day.
GARDEN TOWERS - Installing miraculous growing machines that produce fresh greens, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, strawberries and peppers all year round. Requiring no land, soil, insecticides, or ongoing maintenance, and very little water, the towers can thrive in any climate.
When the foundation learned that more than 3,000 of the district's 19,000 students were coming to school hungry every day, it reached out to the community. The response was both surprising and heart-warming, as Langley individuals, associations, businesses and corporations rallied. Thanks to their generosity, we now have breakfast, lunch, snack and backpack programs in many of our schools. But we have a long way to go, with more and more students needing our help.
