Food For the Brain! Combat Hunger Among Students in Illinois!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

One in six students are hungry at school every day in the United States. These students worry about where they will eat their next meal and often depend on a generous teacher to give them snacks. Hungry children cannot focus or concentrate and often perform poorly on assessments. As high school students in Chicago, we want to combat hunger in school age children in Illinois to give them an equal opportunity to learn in school. Illinois must increase funding for the current school breakfast and lunch programs, create an after school snack program, and expand summer meals initiatives. Our goal is to secure 100 signatures from Illinois students on this petition. We hope to urge Governor Rauner to work with the legislature to initiate legislation and increase funding for student meal programs in Illinois. We demand FOOD FOR THE BRAIN for all Illinois students!
