Who will be your Site Coordinator?

The Site Coordinator serves four main functions in the school: 


1. Serves as a liaison for staff, students, parents, and backpack program 


2. Maintains documentation (student referral and parent permission records) 


3. Confidentially distributes backpacks of food to approved children 


4. Implements the backpack program and ensure compliance with all food safety standards

Counselors can work with teachers.

A great example: 


At one of our schools, the teachers ask the students to put their heads down and close their eyes. The teacher proceeds to ask questions such as, did you eat this morning, did you eat last night, do you have socks, do you have shoes, etc. With each question, the children raise their hand if the answer is a yes. The teacher records who raises their hand for which question and turns this into the counselor so they can reach out to those students with resources.
