Meals

sTOP believes that family style dinning creates a shared experience that offers the children a sense of belonging and identity.  Family meals is a meaningful vehicle for working on communication and unites the residence. 

More than 18.8 percent of children in Connecticut live in households that struggle against hunger.

Hungry children have trouble concentrating, get more headaches and infections, are more likely to be hospitalized and are less likely to perform well in classrooms. It's simply much harder for children at risk of hunger to thrive.

sTOP is trying to help close the dinner-time gap by offering hungry children an afternoon snack or nutritious meal. Without this meal, many children who rely on school meals would spend the time away from school hungry and arrive back in the classroom focused on their empty stomach instead of schoolwork.
