Many students choose to endure a school day with an empty stomach. When students lack the proper nutrition support, their learning ability will be adversely affected. As a youth advocacy group founded by high school students, Teenergetic aims to launch Universal Free Lunch, improve the appeal of school food, and enhance the overall learning experience at all NYC public schools. We believe energetic students make more engaging classrooms, and students should have a voice when it comes to school lunch.
