Everyday, thousands of kids throughout the Valley go to school without breakfast.
We've teamed up with the Arizona Department of Education and the Dairy Council of Arizona to make sure all kids in our community start the day off with a good meal.
Womens Leadership Council's Commitment
to Ending Hunger in the Classroom with Breakfast in the Classroom
WLC's goal is to fund 130 schools, which equates to 75,000 students
Children living in food insecure households are:
- 50% more likely to miss days of school
- Twice as likely to be suspended
- 50% more likely to have to repeat a grade
Because of you, United Way ensures students start the day off with a good meal. See how Breakfast in the Classroom could change these numbers for kids in the Balsz School District.
