An Initiative in Conjunction with Whole Foods Market


SAY NO TO HUNGER is a specified initiative targeting students and their families at The U School who struggle with food insecurity. 

DonCARES sponsors recommended students and their families at The U School with gift-cards to eateries, restaurants, and grocery stores. Through recommendations from school staff, DonCARES anonymously grants these stipends monthly.  Food insecurity is rampant in low-income communities in Philadelphia. Since over 60,000 students live below the poverty guideline, DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. will work to combat this injustice. As an organization we believe no student should struggle with hunger especially when one of their goals is to do well academically. 

Potential recipients are eligible to receive a $100.00 gift card to Wholefoods if they qualify.
