PHA THRIVE is a grassroots volunteer effort by Prospect Hill Academy parents, staff and friends to provide 2 meals a day to students who do not have regular access to food during weekends and school breaks. 16.2 million children in America live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis, and therefore struggle with hunger at some time during the year. As a result, many children are coming to school too distracted by their empty stomachs to focus on doing well in school. Although this national statistic may seem overwhelming, there are small steps we can take in our local community. Support this program and for the same price as a fancy coffee at your local coffee shop you can provide enough food for one backpack that will feed one student over the weekend.
