Who We Are
Propel Schools, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to catalyze the transformation of public education so that all children have access to high performing public schools. Propel has become one of the largest, fastest-expanding sets of charter schools in the state, with high levels of student achievement among Pennsylvania public school districts supporting under-served communities. Propel is serving nearly 3,700 students this year at 11 Allegheny County locations. Our impact goes beyond the classroom, extending into homes and communities as we aim to serve the whole student.
Food insecurity is devastating -- especially to children. Proper nutrition is critical a child’s development. It impacts their mental and physical health, their academic achievement and their future economic prosperity. At Propel Schools, 77% of our students meet the requirements for the federal free/reduced cost lunch program. These students, along with many more in our communities, are not always certain as to when or where their next meal will come.
At Propel Schools, we understand that proper nutrition is critical to a child’s development. We want all students in our communities to reach their full potential, on a full stomach, both inside and outside of the classroom. That is why we have found a collaborative solution to feeding children throughout Allegheny County: Backpack Feeding Programs.
