      Why Fighting Childhood Hunger Is Important

       

      Hunger impairs our children’s health in significant and long-lasting ways:

      • Impedes growth and development

       

      Hunger predisposes our children to behavioral difficulties, including:

      • More aggressive behavior
      • Higher levels of hyperactivity, anxiety and/or passivity
      • Difficulty getting along with other children
      • Greater need for mental health services

       

      Hunger impedes our children’s ability to learn and perform academically.

      Hungry children are likely to:

      • Have impaired cognitive functioning and diminished capacity to learn
      • Achieve lower test scores and overall school performance
      • Repeat a grade
      • Experience school absences, tardiness and school suspensions

       

       

      Additional information is available @

      *100% of the funds from the bake sale will stay local to support after-school and summer feeding programs in the District of Columbia.
