No Kid Hungry--- Share Our Strength

This post of mine today is feeling like it could possibly interconnect  or link up with the Second Harvest post from last week!  I would like to share with you some facts from Share Our Strength's 2012 survey of America's teachers reporting on their experiences with hunger. Some of these facts may hit home in your area, but then again they may not. I would still like for you to give this post your undivided attention for at least 5 minutes, and then think about it again after you've read about it. These survey were from public school teachers around the USA, and it had to do with what they saw in their classroom pertaining to the children.

A good amount of the teachers said that most of a lot of their students depend on their school meals as their primary source of nutrition. More than 3/4 of the teachers that that the U.S. should make Childhood hunger a top priority. Quite a few , or should I say, a majority of the teachers said that they have children in their classrooms who come to school hungry at least once a week. (Coming to school in my mind means that they aren't getting the nutrition that they need for their brains to work well. )
Breakfast helps them to concentrate  better, it helps with better academic performance, and the students tend to have fewer headaches or stomachaches.
 I have more information to share with you below about hunger in our schools!

There is a way that you can support No Kid Hungry by visiting  No Kid Hungry , and take the No Kid Hungry pledge, take action, and share the report with others that you know. Words can speak volumes the more that you share them! 

Disclosure: this was a sponsored post in which I was given the information to share with others, and no compensation was received. The opinions expressed were my own!
