In these unprecedented times, the Student Excellence Foundation has established a Food Insecurity Crisis Fund, an emergency fund providing resources for Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200 students and families facing food insecurity.

Please donate to help local families.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

In District 200, 28% of students come from low-income households. Each day, 3,310 students receive a free or reduced lunch.

While the district has done an incredible job of meeting the food needs of families during the school week during this pandemic, many parents are struggling to feed their children in the evenings and on weekends.

Your donation today will allow District 200 social workers to connect local families with supportive resources to meet nutritional needs.

All donations to the Food Insecurity Crisis Fund go directly to helping local families.

Donate online at StudentExcellenceFoundation.org/foodfund/ or via check: Student Excellence Foundation, P.O. Box 253, Wheaton, IL 60187.

Thank you for coming together to help others in our community during this difficult time.

Founded in 1992 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN # 36-3786044), the foundation serves Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200's 1,800 educators and nearly 13,000 students in 13 elementary schools, four middle schools, two high schools, an early childhood center, and a transition center, and is dependent upon parent and community volunteers.

Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
