Local boy scout packing cereal boxes, gift cards to feed 100 children
SAN ANTONIO - A local boy scout helped unload food and package cereal boxes Sunday afternoon to give to 100 children.
Bryan Graves is working to provide breakfast for children at the School of Science and Technology during the summer as part of his Eagle Scout requirements. More than 50 percent of the children in the school are economically disadvantaged.
The San Antonio Food Bank began providing food Thursday and Friday to take home for those children who did not have enough food at home over the weekend. Graves' project helps address the reality that many of the SST Discovery students will experience hunger during the summer.
"I have seen the impact of hunger on some of our students, and we are grateful to Bryan for providing food over the summer for 100 children," said Jessica Romero, principal for the School of Science and Technology. "Their parents worry about providing enough food, and this will definitely help reduce the stress."
