Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles Co Food Program

By Jeanette Koechner | Director of Community Development

The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County Food Program continues to grow as we see the need to provide a hot nutritious meal for our children.  After school the children arrive at the Club.  Some walk, some are dropped off and some ride in the Boys & Girls Club vehicles.  After the children have finished their homework or played in the games room, dinner is served.  The food prepared for the children provides the nutritious componets to make a healthy meal. If it were not for the Boys & Girls Club Food Program many of our boys and girls would go home to a house where there is no one there and there is no food.  They would not received a meal until they reported to school the next day.  Over 60% of the children we serve live in or below the poverty level and are considered to be "at risk".  A healthy snack is also provided to the children before they depart for the evening.  Since the 2015 School Session began in August, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County has served over 7,000 meals and snacks (free of charge) to our members.  We realize that for many this is the only evening meal that is available to them.  A hungry child does not do well in school, A hungry child is more apt to become involved in activities that are unfavorable.  Children who are not fed properly will develope more childhood illnesses and in their adult life will experience more illnesses.  A hungry child will display unfavorable behavorial actions. The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County Food Program is a very important part of the Club. Hunger does not take a holiday.
