What we learn
What we learn…

  • Hunger is a problem that effects a large population in our region but is often overlooked, this volunteer opportunity gives us a chance to address this problem.

  • In preparation for volunteering students in social studies could study the problem of hunger, in science the life span of food and the path food takes, and in math percentages and ratios of hungry people in our region.

  • In addition to this volunteer opportunity students could study these same topics and hold a food or money drive for donations for Food Lifeline.
