Child poverty and hunger are at alarming levels in Utah. In our communities, 26% of Jordan School District students are on free or reduced lunch – a measurement of students identified as being at or below poverty line standards.
Jordan Education Foundation has teamed up with KUTV News for Souper Bowl of Caring, an excellent vehicle to fight child hunger and help the Jordan School District student population that is homeless or in need of emergency assistance. When children's basic needs are met, they can do better in school.
Donate a small portion of what you would spend on Super Bowl Party food and treats to Jordan Education Foundation and help students in your own community fight hunger!
