It’s hard to work on a math problem when all you can think about is how hungry you feel. When a child is hungry, it becomes increasingly difficult to focus in school, leading to devastating long-term effects. According to the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth, a youth who experiences homelessness is 87% more likely to drop out of school.

No child should have to go to bed hungry or spend the weekend without food. 

The 250 children living at Metropolitan Ministries are provided with three hot meals a day. Our network of meal site partners come to us every day for hot meals which they distribute out into their communities, and through our Metro Super Market families like Damian’s can shop for food.

Together we can help Damian focus on math and not where his next meal is coming from.
