Chick-fil-A sponsors Food 4 Thought breakfast program

Posted Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

The District 54 Education Foundation is pleased to announce that Chick-fil-A of Schaumburg/West Schaumburg is sponsoring the breakfast program at Eisenhower Junior High. Chick-fil-A of Schaumburg/West Schaumburg’s $10,000 donation to the Foundation’s Food 4 Thought program will provide breakfast for all students in need at Eisenhower for the 2016-17 school year.

The D54 Foundation has committed to raising $280,000 to fund breakfast programs at all District 54 schools to ensure that students begin their day ready to learn. 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. Currently the Foundation is funding breakfast programs at nine District 54 schools for nearly 1,300 eligible students.

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 year with a donation of $10,000.

“The D54 Foundation has committed to funding breakfast programs for students from financially struggling families at all District 54 schools to ensure that students begin their day ready to learn,” Foundation Chair Thomas Manzardo said. “We hope that individuals, businesses and organizations will consider making a difference in the life of a child in our community by donating to the D54 Foundation’s Food 4 Thought program.”
