Did you know that in America 1 in 6 children go hungry? At PHILLIPS over 50% of our students come from food insecure families. They rely on breakfast and lunch during the school week; however, when we close for Thanksgiving and then winter break they go hungry. Children who face barriers to nutrition struggle in school, experience a wide range of health problems and exhibit more social and behavioral challenges. Hunger deprives our children of more than just food - it deprives them of a promise for a better tomorrow. The proceeds from this race will purchase food certificates for parents to purchase food for their children when school is closed.
