PHA Thrive 2

PHA Thrive is a food program aimed at eliminating hunger in an extremely diverse urban K-12 school in which 71% of the children qualify for the federally funded free and reduced cost lunch program. PHA, short for Prospect Hill Academy, consists of 3 campuses spread across Somerville and Cambridge, Massachusetts. Through providing weekend food backpacks to children whose guardians sign them up, healthy fresh fruit snacks during the school day, and monthly community suppers with leftovers to take home, we hope to eliminate hunger in this population. We are currently serving 57 children in grades K-3, and 41 children in grades 4-6.
