Summer 2020 Update

When school campuses closed due to COVID-19, the District set up 6 food distribution sites so that families could pick up breakfast and lunch for their students.  School Fuel joined them on Fridays to hand out 893 sacks for the hungry kids enrolled in School Fuel.  The District's parent liaison coordinator soon realized that the hungriest of the children did not have access to the distribution sites so she coordinated with the Transportation Department and delivered more than 300 sacks directly to their homes.  We were able to continue this program through the end of June.

"School Fuel Provides Meals to SMCISD Students During School Closure" - San Marcos Daily Record

MISSION

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.

WHY?

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. 

HOW?

School Fuel is currently serving 891 students who have a high-risk of little or no food at home. Each week during the school year, the students receive a sack containing supplemental foods that they can easily open and serve themselves.

HELP!

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.
