Humble Middle School students team up with Kids’ Meals to provide meals to children in need
Students at Humble Middle School spent part of their October Break giving back to help others. Seventh and eighth grade girls visited Kids’ Meals on the first part of the October Break to prepare over 1,600 meals for preschool-aged children in need. Kids’ Meals delivers five days a week, providing an average of approximately 3,100 meals per day.
“It’s important that children learn to give back while developing a spirit of giving,” Torchawa Alexander, a coach at Humble Middle School said. Alexander spearheaded the school’s effort to help Kids’ Meals.
“The students had such a positive experience that they want to help again during the February break,” Torchawa said.
A total of 35 Humble Middle School volleyball players from seventh and eighth grades volunteered for the project.
In addition to meals, students also decorated and donated approximately 1,250 paper lunch bags to the program.
“Students really enjoyed decorating the bags and wanted to help as much as they could,” Alexander said.
Kids’ Meals uses up to 3,100 bags each day during the school year. The number doubles during the summer and holidays.
Kids’ Meals delivers food to children under age five in 40 zip codes throughout greater Houston. The program thrives from food donations provided by businesses and citizens.
