Not on our watch
Children should be hungry for knowledge, not food.
Food insecurity and poor lifestyle choices have significant repercussions on the health and education of our youth. When students attend school on an empty stomach their energy levels, problem solving skills, creativity, concentration and behaviour are negatively impacted.
