A critical component to a healthy life is nutrition. According to Feeding America, "In the US, more than on out of five children lives in a household with food insecurity, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal." Hunger Free MISD exists to provide nutritious food items over the weekend for students from households that may be experiencing difficulties, including food insecurity.
