Snack Buddies is a pilot program started by two 9th graders from Tuckahoe High School, James Galati and Matthew Kern, located at Cottle Elementary School. Children receive breakfast and lunch at school through the Free & Reduced Lunch Program, but no snack during the school day. Snack Buddies will fill in this crucial gap, providing healthy snacks for children in need and for children who may have forgotten to bring their snack to school.

We are asking the Tuckahoe School Community to help make Snack Buddies a success by donating healthy snacks. Providing snacks will boost the student's energy and improve their focus to learn and perform their best. If you would be willing to help support the Snack Buddies program, please drop off your donation on January 26, 2018 between 5:00-6:00pm in the main office where we will be there to collect your donations. We are asking for individual wrapped healthy snacks that are peanut free.

Thank you in advance for helping us get Snack Buddies started and providing healthy snacks to our Cottle Students who may be in need.
