Food 4 Thought

Nearly one-fourth of District 54 students qualify for the federal free lunch program. Although District 54 receives state and federal funds for the lunch program, schools that want to offer breakfast programs to our students in need must raise the money on their own. During the 2019-2020 school year, the D54 Foundation funded breakfast programs at 19 schools for nearly 1,600 eligible students.

The D54 Foundation has committed to raising enough money to fund breakfast programs at all District 54 schools to ensure that students begin their day ready to learn. You can help by donating to the Foundation’s Food 4 Thought program.

Donations of any size to Food 4 Thought have a direct impact on students’ lives. It costs just $1 a day, or $5 a week, to provide a healthy breakfast to a student; a $200 donation provides breakfast to a child for a full school year. Businesses/corporations and individuals can also sponsor an entire school for a full year with a donation of $10,000.

To make a secure donation: Donate online to the Food for Thought Program, or you can download the Food 4 Thought Donation Form. For more information, call (847) 357-5027 or e-mail [email protected].
