The clock ticks agonizingly slowly. The math teacher explains incomprehensible formulas on the blackboard. The children's stomachs growl. Then, at last, the relieving recess gong and the schoolyards fill with children's laughter and fragrant snacks lovingly prepared by their parents.
What is part of the school day for many children in Germany is new and foreign to children from other cultures. At the Fürstätt elementary and middle school in Rosenheim, many students have a migration background. Most of them come to class without lunch. Since it is not customary in many cultures to bring food to school, Bürgerstiftung Rosenheim, together with the school administration and the ConTech startup Flexcavo, would like to raise awareness among parents.
A healthy and substantial meal is important so that children can concentrate and are invigorated at school. It doesn't always have to be bread, but there should always be something to eat. Flexcavo operates a rental park for construction machinery in Rosenheim and supports the initiative of the community foundation by donating lunch boxes. In the future, every school child should have a cool box for lunch.
