JUICE AND CRACKERS FOR THE ORANGE CENTER ELEMENTARY

Sometimes little things make a big difference. At the Orange Center Elementary, most students qualify for free breakfast, but the terms of the funding state that the free breakfast must end at a specific time each morning. Often students arrive late, missing the opportunity for free breakfast, and sadly, sometimes these children may not have eaten since lunch the day before. When a child is hungry, he cannot focus on class work and may become disruptive. The Orlando Breakfast Rotary stocks a pantry at OCE with juice and crackers so the kids who fall through the cracks can have some food in their bellies. This is just one way we support the Orange Center Elementary. A special thanks to Rotarian Rich O’Brien from New Traditions Bank for leading this effort on behalf of the Orlando Breakfast Rotary....
