School Market

School Market

One of the largest gaps in childhood hunger in Central Florida is food resources for teens. Teens play an active role in feeding their families, however, barriers such as stigma prevent teens from accessing the food they need. The School Market Program is an innovative intervention for youth hunger and food insecurity.

School Markets are established to provide free snacks, meal items, and fresh produce to students without question of need or eligibility. The stigma barrier is reduced by incorporating students into the development of the market, providing snacks and meal items, offering client choice, and eliminating the traditional intake system.

The School Market Program establishes partnerships between not-for-profit community organizations (churches, Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis, etc.) with schools in their community to provide food to teens attending medium-to-high need schools in Central Florida. Community organizations support our educators by providing a critical resource to make sure students are successful and that our educators can focus on what they do best!

Students who are hungry are less likely to focus on their education. Investing in the success of our youth means a brighter future for us all.

Applications for new partners will be accepted January through March 2019 for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.
