The main goal of The Ben Curtis Family Foundation is to help alleviate childhood hunger. Numerous studies have shown that when children go to school on a full stomach, they are better able to focus on what they are learning. Birdie Bags contain nine meals and six snacks. The bags are designed to go home with students on each of the 10 long weekends throughout the year. The program started with one elementary school and has now grown to include nearly 965 children in six schools.
