Many children are not able to afford school lunch every day and they are frequently harassed and humiliated at school by peers and staff alike. Please help pay it forward by supporting Food for Thought, a digital application designed to allow parents to anonymously pay for a students email through the pre-paid lunch system. All donations will go directly to creating and maintaining the application. According to Feeding America, 13 million children lived in food-insecure households in 2015. When you initially look at the US, you see restaurants, diners, and pubs. We, like many other Americans, overlooked the food deserts and the hungry children. Across the United States, 76% of school districts in America have school lunch debt, some of which is in the millions (feedingamerica). It astounded us that in one of the wealthiest and most advanced countries in the world there were still communities that were going hungry.  After seeing that so many students were either at risk or current going hungry we researched the stigma related to poverty and found that students and their parents were being publicly humiliated for not being able to pay for their lunches. We want to raise awareness for childhood hunger and ease the lives of many students. Food for Thought is our way of helping students get food and circumvent the societal stigma related to poverty.  Through the application, parents will be able to pay for their own child's meal and will be presented with an option to donate 2-3 dollars to pay for a meal of another student. Other donors will also be able to donate money to help children get lunch in their community. Please help us out by donating! Anything and everything is greatly appreciated, thank you!
