Tascosa High School Starts “Snack Shack” To Feed Students Of The High School
This is AWESOME and inspirational! Not a day goes by that I don't learn a lesson that's taught by someone much younger than I am. Students at Tascosa High School have began "Snack Shack" to help feed fellow students at the high school that need help.
"The Friends in Service for Hunger of FISH Club at Tascosa has been working on getting the "Snack Shack" since the summer. It's a student lead program.
"It means I can actually help out my school in a different way then just helping teachers grade homework. I can actually directly help my peers in their learning and education," said Tascosa High School Senior, Hannah Lovett.
"I didn't realize it was such a big problem at Tascosa. When we first came out with the idea I was really hesitate. It seems like a big project this seems like a big deal," said Tascosa High School Senior, Fallon Fristoe.
Snack Pak 4 Kids says their data shows Tascosa has the highest number of homeless kids. What's different about this program, students in need don't go to a pantry to pick up their food, it's done through technology."
Tascosa is the first school in Amarillo to begin a program like Snack Shack.
The fact that Tascosa has the highest rate of homeless students blew my mind. It really makes me think about how much I take for granted in my life.
The program is done anonymously, so there's no chance of embarrassment for any students that are taking part in the program.
Amarillo High is soon to follow with the same program, coming in December.
I couldn't tell you how inspired I am by these students!
