Food in School and the Community. Fall/Winter 2021
We have been working with 7th graders at Martin Luther King, Jr School who selected as their advocacy project – Food in School and the Community. They wound up creating “Martin’s Martin”, which is a pantry with food, clothing and health/hygiene items for students and their families. One unexpected request for food items comes from families who are quarantined due to COVID and cannot go grocery shopping so they call the school and request food items to help tide them over until their quarantine time is over.
