The Food For Thought Initiative is a local non profit working with staff and students to improve food access for East High School students (and their families) who are experiencing homelessness, financial hardship, hunger and inadequate nutrition. Almost 17,000 students in Wisconsin schools were identified as homeless in 2012-2013 and it is estimated that this number has since risen. An estimated 5.7 percent of Madison public school students are considered homeless. East High School has a disproportionate concentration of students facing hunger, inadequate nutrition and/or barriers to access food. This unique program which allows high school students direct access to nutritious food and personal care items for themselves and family members is one of two Heideman Award winners for 2017.
