School Fuel is providing for up to 1,100 students this year, grades K-8. At Christmas, spring break and the end of the year a supplemental sack of food is provided to help the children with the longer time away from two free meals each day at school. These supplemental sacks have an 18 oz jar of peanut butter, Ritz crackers (in sleeves) and a 1.5 oz Hershey bar. Donations of these items are needed and can be delivered to the facility at 1331 Highway 123 most Thursday evenings between 5:00 and 7:30 pm or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com for pick up arrangements.
If you wish to make a monetary donation instead, mail a check to School Fuel at 102 Wonder World Drive, Suite 304, #120, San Marcos, TX 78666 or set up an automatic payment with your bank or credit union or PayPal. It costs just $18 per month to help a hungry student succeed at school.
School Fuel’s mission is to provide the "fuel" for a better learning environment by removing the pangs of hunger among the students in our classrooms.
Over 75% of our SMCISD students qualify for free or reduced meals at school. They go home on the weekends to little or no food at home. Statistics show that children who struggle with hunger at home perform at lower levels in school during the week.
School Fuel is currently serving 1,100 students who have a high-risk of little or no food at home. Each Friday of the school year, the students receive a sack containing supplemental foods that they can easily open and serve themselves.
School Fuel is solely managed and operated by volunteers. Volunteers keep the operation costs low, which maximizes the number of children we are able to feed. Our operation is sustained by donations. $215 will provide weekend food for a child during the school year.
