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.
