Cognizant of the impact hunger has on learning, Crowe is adamantly working to support students and their families.
“I also learned about the struggles that these kids are having in school and how food really helps them,” Crowe shared with AfroTech in an interview in October 2021. “So many of the teachers [were] coming up to us and saying, ‘I have kids coming in and they don’t even know when they’re going to eat again, and I can hear their stomachs growling in the classroom.’ Just being able to now say, ‘Let me take you to the grocery store and get you something’ is just life-changing for them. I felt like this was something that I knew, but to hear it from the teachers and staff is amazing.”
