Education

Our commitment to education is rooted in Mona’s history as a special education teacher, an administrator, and as parents. We are working to ensure that children across Louisiana have access to the food and nutrition they need to be productive in their classes to reach their full potential. To this end, we have partnered with other organizations to fund school backpack programs. This program identifies children who receive free breakfast and lunch at schools and seeks to ensure that they have food to eat over the weekend throughout the school year. Each child identified receives a backpack with food for him/her to take home. Most items are easily heated or made by the child themselves because many of them are left alone. A pack of food for the weekend costs approximately $7.95.

Recently, we have partnered with CHRISTUS Highland and Children’s Miracle Network to create food pantries for needed schools in the Shreveport-Bossier area. We are also working with the Northeast Louisiana Food Bank on a fundraiser to be held in early 2020 with a focus of providing funding for more children for school backpack program.

Finally, we are creating new scholarship opportunities at the college level for young adults entering the fields of education and healthcare.
