This school-wide service project gives students an opportunity to pack 25,000 meals for children around the world who experience food insecurity.
Community service is good for our kids. Research shows that thoughtfully organized service experiences that meet actual community needs and involve school-community collaboration build children’s confidence, compassion, sense of social responsibility, and connection to their school and broader community.
This half-day meal-kit build will be led by nonprofit partner Rise Against Hunger. Each group of students will receive a 15-minute orientation including an age-appropriate discussion about hunger and food insecurity. The students will then work in teams of six to weigh, measure and package nutritious dehydrated meals (rice, soy, vegetables, vitamin mix) to be distributed to children in the US and internationally.
The 2018 Winter Service Project will be held on December 7.
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: Volunteers are needed on the day of the event to assist students in the assembly line and clean up after the event.
