Hunger Facts

Imagine your child’s classroom: thirty children, and fifteen of them are hungry.

58% of children in the Clark County School District are enrolled in free and reduced-price meal programs based on their family income. That’s more than half of the kids facing hunger at home and coming to school unprepared to learn.
