Project GRACE tries to improve the lives of our neighbors by identifying both those in need and those willing to share their gifts, and coordinating the interchange in a compassionate, confidential manner.
In that spirit, at a recent school board meeting, Project GRACE awarded Scarborough schools a $2,500 grant for the current school year. The School Nutrition program, led by director Judy Campbell, has been receiving funding from Project GRACE for the past few years. The long-standing partnership helps students get the daily nutrition required for achieving success at school.
School staff notice when kids come to school hungry, they see when a child simply does not get enough nutritious meals at home. The Project GRACE grant extends the reach of the school nutrition program by paying for milk and snacks, breakfasts and lunches, and second helpings, for students whose families are struggling to make ends meet.
