No More Starving Artists! Snack Sponsorships now available

ASAP Snack Sponsorship Program
Corporate and Group Service Opportunity

Most of us can relate to the discomfort and difficulty of trying to concentrate on work when our stomach is empty and rumbling. For children living with food insecurity, those feelings occur all too often and are a barrier to their success—but not at ASAP. Please join ASAP in promising:  No more starving artists!

Students are transported on an ASAP-chartered bus immediately after school. Most students eat lunch 4–5 hours before arriving at ASAP—they are HUNGRY. Hungry kids are impulsive, emotional, aggressive, and have trouble performing up to their potential. A critical part of ASAP kids’ experience coming downtown is enjoying a healthy, hearty snack before they begin their work in the art studios.
