Childhood hunger and food scarcity are serious problems on Martha’s Vineyard, and unfortunately there are so many children who are impacted by this. We all know how expensive it is to live on the Island, and just surviving can be a struggle for many.

Healthy Happy Kids is an important part of the school day for so many children. When you ask them what they like about the Club. For many, they say the food first, followed by the gym, art, and of course homework club.

Knowing that they can eat when they’re hungry is a great feeling. H2K has had a positive effect on the after school at the Club as a whole. Full bellies help kids be happier, have more focus, enjoy their time with friends and play. Before H2K, there were noticeable behavior issues, and now things are definitely improved.
