Sonya Romero, a kindergarten teacher at Lew Wallace Elementary School, knows the benefits of children coming to school with a full stomach.

"I get to see them first thing and it makes a huge difference in their morning," she said. "They are ready to learn, they are engaged, they are active and not complaining about their tummies, and they display fewer negative behaviors. I know when I'm hungry I don't feel like doing anything, so imagine a child. Nutritious food makes a huge difference. With food security and full belly, you're ready to learn."
That's why Romero is excited that Lew Wallace is one of four schools working with Project Blue Box, in which children from poor families can get a bag or a box of food once a week to help those families stay fed.

Albuquerque, New Mexico (CNN) Sonya Romero learned early in her career that teaching is about more than just the subject matter -- it's about the students.
"Their needs have be met -- whatever they are ... socially, emotionally, physically, so that they have the ability to learn, " says Romero.
She teaches kindergarten at Lew Wallace Elementary School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and most of her students live in poverty. Romero works hard to make her kids feel comfortable and safe in the classroom so they can focus on their lessons.
"When my students come in the morning, I ask if they've eaten breakfast. Once they've had their breakfast I just do an assessment of needs," says Romero. "I buy and keep in stock socks, jackets, scarves, hats, toothbrushes and snacks. I've done that since I started teaching. And over the years as the population has shifted, I've needed a lot more of those supplies."
