      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.




      If you are not able to participate, you may make a monetary

      contribution to support 5DCAC.
