ABC Program Improving Chances for Academic Success

The Children at Coopers Town Primary School  have been working hard this year and we want to make sure that they have the advantage of a healthy breakfast to start the day. Did you know that studies have shown that breakfast improves the chance of academic and personal success for school age children? According to the Food Research and Action Center:

  • Children who eat breakfast at school perform better on standardized tests than those who skip breakfast
  • Children who skip breakfast are less able to master the tasks necessary to do well in school.
  • Students who participate in school breakfast exhibit decreased behavioral and psychological problems and have lower rates of absence and tardiness.

Our Breakfast Program is helping to address food security in Abaco where many families are still struggling to recover from a Category 5 Hurricane and a Global Pandemic. The program is run by two wonderful ladies who are members of the community. They do the shopping to purchase food and supplies, and then arrive early in the morning to prepare and serve the food as the children get off the bus. After breakfast the children return their dishes to the kitchen where the crew does the clean up and prepares for the next day. Well nourished, the children are happy and ready to start the day by 8:30. You can see the breakfast program in action where the children received a special treat of waffles and hot chocolate on the last day of school before Christmas Break. 

We need your help to continue to fund this important program at Coopers Town Elementary, and through your generosity, we hope to expand the program to other schools in Abaco. Please consider making a monthly or one time donation to help these children be successful in school.
