Some Kids Hate Mateo: Snow Days Can Be Hungry Days For Some Students
OREANDA-NEWS. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for much of the Midwest this weekend. Winter Storm Mateo is on the way, and his presence isn't welcome by some students.
Snow days are something most students love, however for food-insecure children, an impromptu day off can mean they're cut off from their most consistent access to food. That leaves these kids and the school officials who help feed them cheering against snow days each winter, something most people would never consider.
"Snow days, when kids don't have access to school meals, are especially hard on the 1 in 6 kids in the United States who face hunger," said Jill Davis, Senior Vice President at No Kid Hungry. "We can end child hunger by making sure kids in need get a healthy breakfast at school, which is exactly what our partnership with Kellogg entails, improving and expanding school breakfast programs in cities across America."
As part of their Breakfasts for Better Days™ global signature cause, Kellogg Company has partnered with No Kid Hungry to help make sure more kids have access to wholesome meals in schools.
