Norfolk Initiative for Chess Excellence (NICE) provides free chess after school in various locations. We figured out that kids learn less and meltdown more when they haven't eaten since 11 a.m. Many come to the centers straight from school. Others just get hungray after basketball and other sports offerred at the centers prior to our chess play.
So we went out and put our new 501c3 status to work in the community collecting overflow from local bakeries and getting Harris Teeter on board for juice and some extra specialtreats like gummi bears or cookies. All the overflow we can't save for the following week goes home with out senior citizen mentors or the families.
Give us your extras and we will make things NICE!
