Canned Food Drive

Community Involvement
Canned Food Drive

Our school decided to feed our community by bringing in over 2000 cans of food and dry food boxes. The kids organized the cans into large boxes that are ready for pick-up. This will feed over 100 families in our community with much of it going back to our kids here at school.  We also have what's called the Lion's Den, a group that goes to where the kids live and hosts an organized healthy activity in which parents, kids and teachers participate. We also pass out healthy snacks and water. We do this event once a month with great success.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The parents supplied the cans and kids brought them to school,then organized and boxed them.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We spread the word by sending home fliers and by word of mouth.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids are excited to see that they feed families in and around the community.
