Fighting Family Food Insecurity at School


In early February, 2019 DonCARES launched their Stand-Up To Hunger is a specified initiative targeting students and their families who struggle with food insecurity. ​DonCARES sponsors recommended students and their families 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 $75.00 gift card to Wholefoods if they qualify. In February, 2019 we granted a gift card to the mother of two of our mentees in our program.

In addition, to providing gift cards to U School families, DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. makes an effort to provide meals to students at our events and outings. With the help of your donations, we can help cover the costs of meals for our monthly group mentoring events at The U School.
