About Us


On May 27, 2018, we announced the Care Project to help make sure our students have access to meals at school and to protect the financial security of families trying to pay for school meals.

You can join us! Become a partner today by taking these actions:

  • Share the word to your family and friends about the problem and the project!
  • Come to our Action Team meetings to help make the changes we need.
  • Help us raise money and awareness about unfair school meal policies in our local area.
  • Help us fight for more equitable policies on the local, state, and federal levels.
