Mapping Hunger in West Michigan
One in five Michigan children is food insecure. The average rate of students living at or near the poverty level at Sack Supper schools is 70%. Teachers witness students failing to thrive due to poor nutrition. A lack of consistent, nutritious food limits cognitive development and leaves kids unable to concentrate in school. Additionally, without healthy food, children can demonstrate behavioral issues like irritability, aggression, and anxiety.
