Nutritious meals are vital to the developing minds and bodies of our young students.
We are so close to raising $25,000 to provide healthy lunches and snacks to all our students. Will you help us reach our goal before this campaign ends on Monday?
Healthy nutrition is our priority
When you think about school lunches, you may have visions of cafeteria trays laden with unhealthy pizza, hot dogs, and pudding. Well, at 3 Mariposas Montessori our snacks and lunches couldn’t be farther from those images!
For some of our students, the meals they have at school are the only healthy food they eat all day, so we strive to provide the most nutritious options to each child, every school day.
In true Montessori tradition, our students are involved in every step of the process. Learning about nutrition and helping to prepare the meal helps to establish lifelong healthy eating habits.
The children learn to peel, cut vegetables and fruit, and make muffins and whole wheat bread. They help tend our new vegetable garden, prepare lunch tables, and even help in washing their own dishes and cloth napkins.
In an impoverished community like ours, we can’t think of better gifts to share with our children than education and good nutrition!
Your generous donation will help us create the perfect foundation to create a brighter and healthier future for our students!
