Grant to support program for area’s hungriest students

Every Monday, teachers at area schools watch for students who run for breakfast and lunch lines, poke through trash cans looking for food to take home or who ask other students for food.

These are the area’s hungriest students; children who come to school at the start of the week not having eaten over the weekend. Now, the Johnson County Community Foundation is partnering with a central Indiana food bank to ensure these students get meals on Saturday and Sundays.

For several years, Gleaners food bank in Indianapolis has been trying to feed about 300 area students from 11 Clark-Pleasant, Franklin and Greenwood schools who don’t have food at home over the weekend.
