Vernon-and-SonsMalnutrition is taking place in our own backyard and is a factor in students not reaching their full potential.

Research shows many children in our area are “food insecure”, i.e.,  not always having enough nutritious food to eat for healthy development.  PERFECT 10 identifies food-insecure children and gives each child a bag of nutritious food in their backpack at the end of the school week.

We also provide meals and snacks for a child and their siblings during Spring Break, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas,as well as other items as needed (e.g., clothing, toiletries, toys at Christmas). PERFECT 10 believes a child will not care about how much we know until they know how much we care.

A physically nourished child is ready to learn, grow and reach their potential.
