Food 4 Thought

The D54 Foundation has committed to raising $280,000 to fund breakfast programs at all District 54 schools to ensure that students begin their dafood-4-thought-logoy ready to learn, and you can help by donating to the Foundation’s Food 4 Thought program.

Nearly one-fourth of District 54 students qualify for the federal free lunch program, and while District 54 receives state and federal funds for the lunch program, schools that want to offer breakfast programs to our students in need must raise the money on their own. The D54 Foundation is currently funding breakfast programs at 10 schools for nearly 1,300 eligible students. Our goal is to fund the breakfast program at all District 54 schools.

Donations of any size to Food 4 Thought have a direct impact on students’ lives. It costs just $1 a day, or $5 a week, to provide a healthy breakfast to a student; a $200 donation provides breakfast to a child for a full school year. Businesses/corporations and individuals can also sponsor an entire school for a full year with a donation of $10,000.
