Click the donate button to provide healthy snacks for five kids for a month!
The kids in our program have easy access to unhealthy treats from the neighborhood convenience store. After school they are all hungry for something, and that is usually chips, candy, and juice. With poor education on nutrition, diet, and meal planning, low-income families often choose food that is tasty in the short-term, but in the long-term often results in obesity, diabetes, and other health problems.
Starfish provides education on choosing nutritious food items as well as resources on meal planning and budgeting for the older kids. Help us provide healthy snacks like fresh fruit, yogurt, and whole-grain food items that fill their belly with something better and teach our kids the importance of nutrition.
