Kids going hungry during spring break

Pathways children

While many families plan vacations during spring break, hardworking families in Immokalee face two significant shortages – no access to free and reduced lunches at school and lack of affordable childcare.

In Collier County Public Schools, 62 percent of students are eligible for free and reduced lunches. Because schools are closed during spring break, many students go hungry.

Pathways stays open during spring break to serve the growing minds and bodies of 122 students, ranging from 4 weeks to 5 years old.

Contact me for a personal tour to learn how you can feed the minds and bodies of Immokalee children.
