This Year's Project: Hungry students in schools.

About Our Organization

The Sioux City Public Schools Foundation mission is to provide innovative programs that increase student engagement and achievement that cannot be achieved through limited state and federal funding. 

The foundation's three pillars are Arts & Culture, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and Equity (or closing the achievement gap). 

Educators and students exceed Sioux City Community School District's mission to educate students to believe in their talents and skills, achieve academic excellence and succeed in reaching their potential. 



Current Project: Hungry students in schools.

Children experiencing hunger are more likely to have problems with memory and concentration skills.  They do not have the energy to carry out these functions. Being hungry can tamper with sleeping patterns too.  Many of our students receive their only meals at school.  Want to give back?  Instead of buying that car behind you a cup of coffee or a fast-food meal, donate to pay-off a child's lunch balance.  The estimated costs for kids who do not meet the requirements of free and reduced lunches, but cannot afford them is as around $50,000+ How can your money help?  A $30 donation as an example will pay for:

9 lunches - 1 high school or middle school student

10 lunches - 1 elementary student

15 breakfasts - 1 high school or middle school student

16 breakfasts - 1 elementary student
