Help Kids in Bryan-College Station Schools Focus on Learning, Free of Hunger

Books, computers, school supplies, all are essential to effective education. What’s even more essential? A stomach free of hunger pangs, an adequately nourished body and mind. A Bryan-College Station community leader, Christine Folkers, is bringing awareness to the issue of hunger in schools. Sh’s sponsoring hot lunches for kids who would otherwise go without; and, she’s encouraging others who can help to do likewise.

College Station ISD as of the 2017-2018 school year has done away with cheese sandwiches in all district Elementary schools! This means, regardless of the negative balance, the child will receive a hot lunch every day. Can we take a moment to celebrate the incredible decision that was made this year to prevent lunch shaming and bullying. WOW! College Station ISD, I am incredibly proud to send my children to a school district with such integrity! That being said, this new program is costing the district a lot of money. There is a great need. There are children who do not quite qualify for free and reduced lunches and I was told that some children have $60+ dollars past due lunch balances.

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP- College Station ISD Child Nutrition Services has an “Are you hungry” lunch account. You can mail a check in to CSISD, you can list the school that you want to help out or it can be applied to all the schools in the district. Mail your check to:
College Station Independent School District
ATTN: CHILD NUTRITION SERVICES
1812 Welsh College Station, TX 77840

I spoke with Bryan ISD as well. After the child’s account goes negative -$7.00 they receive a cheese sandwich. Can you imagine a child who types their lunch number in tomorrow and expects another cheese sandwich, suddenly getting a hot lunch?

Here is how you can help sponsor a child in Bryan:
Bryan Independent School District
ATTN: CHILD NUTRITION SERVICES
1920 N Earl Rudder Fwy
Bryan, Texas 77808

Christine Folkers- Farmers Insurance Agency is the first to step up and put her money where her mouth is. We are sponsoring children from each school district every month! No child should worry about school lunch. Can you sponsor a tray? Will you post and share? This is our community and it’s only as strong, loving, and small-town family as we make it.

If you aren’t local, call your school. Sponsor where you are!
