Just as important are the facts contained in this article about how public schools have become the dining room and the “last frontier” for many children to get food.

While food is essential for living it is also essential for learning.  Without nutrition it is difficult to concentrate and focus on learning when you are yearning for food.

Nationwide, one in five households with children are considered food insecure, which means people in the household are at risk of going hungry or missing meals or don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
