We are committed to delivering meals and boarding essentials to low-income college students to reduce the hardships of hunger and to facilitate uninterrupted academic achievement.
Student LunchBox (SLB) is a 501(c)3 approved, tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization committed to fighting food insecurity among college students. We realize our program by purchasing, soliciting, and distributing foods and other essentials to low-income college students who otherwise cannot afford balanced meals.
Recent studies indicate that nearly half of the college students do not have the financial means to sustain their living, leading to food insecurity which directly impacts student graduation rates. SLB is an essential resource that responds quickly with one of the most critical resources students need: food.
Our approach to fighting campus hunger is simple. We build partnerships with local businesses and distributors, community retailers, local food growers, farmer markets, and other partners who donate safe and nutritious foods that otherwise would end up in landfills. We are also looking forward to working with food banks and food suppliers that donate to charities such as Student LunchBox. Our prime responsibility as a charitable food distributor is to support environmental sustainability, help reduce waste, and support the low-income students who do not have enough to eat.
