How Can Teachers Help?

Teachers play a critical role in our Sack Supper program. You are on the frontline every day and understand the impact poor nutrition has on a student’s energy, concentration, and success. This is why we partner with teachers at schools in the following ways:

Help us identify kids who should receive Sack Suppers. Teachers and school-based social workers help us determine how many Sack Suppers your school needs by identifying the kids who may be suffering from poor nutrition. If you teach at a participating school and think a student may be suffering from poor nutrition, please contact your Kids’ Food Basket school coordinator.

Distribute Sack Suppers in your classroom. We understand that there is always a lot happening in your classroom, so we work hard to make participating in Kids’ Food Basket easy and meaningful. Each day, Sack Suppers will be delivered directly to your classroom, and you will simply need to hand out the suppers before the end of the school day.

Join our Teacher Liaison Committee. Because you know the kids and their needs, we want to hear from you. Our Teacher Liaison Committee provides important feedback about the program, creates new ways to engage teachers, and strengthens the relationship between Kids’ Food Basket and the schools served.

Teach children about childhood hunger by encouraging them to visit our website.  Please find attached our Kids' Food Basket's website assignment that helps children learn about our mission.
