You can make sure kids have the food they need to succeed academically.

You can make sure kids have the food they need to succeed academically.
October 30, 2018 Giving Tuesday

Amy loves doing her math homework. She loves it so much that she usually gets the homework for the whole week done on the first night. On the other week nights, she lines her stuffed animals up so she can teach them the math concepts too. Her teacher told her mother that it’s easy to see Amy is gifted in math.

Recently, Amy’s mother had her hours at work cut back. Money was already tight and now Amy’s mother can’t afford to buy food and pay rent. Now sometimes Amy is hungry when she goes to bed at night. Research says hunger could prevent Amy from excelling in math. Children who are hungry have lower standardized tests scores—particularly math scores—and are more likely to repeat a grade. At MOM, we say together we can change that. Join us on Giving Tuesday—and give kids like Amy the healthy food they need to succeed in school.

#GivingTuesday. A moment of action. A lifetime of change.
