Starfishpack Abbotsford was recently praised by the School District 34’s Superintendent, Kevin Godden, as being the most notable endeavour in feeding children.
In the article, Kevin outlines the tragedy of the effects of hunger on developing brains.
“Hungry children are distressed children. Research in the field of neuroscience (and common sense) tells us that depriving the body of nutrients has a significant impact on brain development, and consequently one’s ability to learn. We should not be surprised that children who come to school chronically hungry demonstrate more inappropriate behaviours, are more inattentive, and are more likely to exhibit negative interactions with peers and their teachers. If you have ever been hungry for an extended period of time you will know what I am talking about.”
