Children nationwide are hungry
-More than 13 million kids in the United States live in a home with food insecurity and over 30 million students in the United States participate in the federal free and/or reduced lunch program.
-A report by the CDC states “Hunger due to insufficient food intake is associated with lower grades, higher rates of absenteeism, repeating a grade, and an inability to focus among students.”
-The current system (typical backpack program) to get food into the hands of these students for weekends is outdated and inefficient!
-These programs require extensive volunteer hours to purchase, transport, store, pack and distribute food and necessities.
-On top of the inefficiency, these programs come with a great social cost to students – the embarrassment of having to carry the food home in front of their peers.
-This is where the Boost Box makes a difference. It boosts nutrition, grades, and morale.
-Revolutionize the process nationwide with a custom online product allowing home delivery of food and necessities to low-income students and skip the volunteer intensive and outdated programs.
Through your generous donation, each month reFUEL will deliver a “Boost Box” of items to our identified students who have registered through their local school. The process is simple: students are registered through their schools, supplies are ordered on the reFUEL website by experienced pantry professionals and a “Boost Box” is delivered directly to the student’s home.
The ReFUEL innovative online system saves students the sometimes embarrassing and burdensome task of carrying home an extra backpack and schools no longer need to shop, haul, store, pack or deliver food. It is all done with a few clicks of a button online using the ReFUEL website.
We thank you for your donation! Your contribution will go a long way in feeding a hungry child. The money will help us streamline the reFUEL system and give children in Chatham County access to the food and supplies they desperately need and meet their daily nutritional goals.
