In order to keep young active minds sharp and focused, it is essential to fuel them with nutritious meals so that they have the energy to keep going. Research proves that having a belly full of healthy, fresh foods improves student’s performance, memory, and even school attendance.  That’s why we created KidsBites, a Philabundance initiative to serve nutritious foods for children and their families.

Diane Gillen, a teacher at Lowell Elementary school ( which is a KidsBites distribution site), shares how hunger is affecting the children in our community, and how Philabundance is working with local schools to keep students happy and healthy.
