About the HHCEF Lunch Fund
The HHCEF Lunch Fund, in cooperation with Aramark, provides school lunches on a short-term basis for children whose families do not quite qualify for the free and reduced lunch program and yet they have significant need. Over the years, the HHCEF Lunch Fund has paid for thousands of school lunches, serving as a safety net for this under-served segment of our district community.
New in 2014: Pre-testing Breakfasts
In 2014, the Lunch Fund will also begin funding pre-testing breakfasts. These nutritious breakfasts are provided at the elementary level on state testing days.
Why breakfast? Studies over the years have demonstrated consistently that children who eat a nutritious breakfast perform better academically than those who don’t. On state testing days, the stakes are high, and the Lunch Fund, in partnership with Aramark, is there to ensure that a poor breakfast – or no breakfast at all – is not an obstacle to our children’s success.
