This semester especially, it has come to my attention that a dozen or so students are telling me they are hungry. Many students in our school qualify for reduced/free breakfast and lunch. I give out some kind of snack/treat every couple of weeks while students are taking an exam. It's something like a cup of popcorn. However, some students are asking me in class if they have things to eat now regularly. I am afraid if I say yes to one, the whole class is going to want something. If I give it to one student, shouldn't I be giving it to all? I remember in high school I could always eat no matter what, even if I was really hungry or not. Any suggestions? I already give out free pencils/paper to those who occasionally need it. It's not a big deal for this. If I start giving out food regularly, I'm afraid it will be expected and it would not come out of a school fund, it would come from my funds. Not that I mind spending my money on school supplies or an occasional treat every couple of weeks, I just don't know about having "extra food on hand". Other teachers I talk to apparently "always have food". Am I overthinking this? Do you give the food to them when no other students are around? I wouldn't mind giving snacks regularly to a dozen or so students but for "all students in all my classes regularly??" That might be a bit much. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
