Contemporary Cuisine Students organized a school-wide canned food drive to donate to our local food bank, Shared Harvest.
We worked with Shared Harvest to plan our project.
Our class was able to donate over 500 lbs. of food before the holidays for families in need.
It takes time, patience, and hard-work to plan a school-wide drive.
Our community relies heavily on Shared Harvest to feed local families in need.
This project has helped students recognize they can make a difference in the community in which they live.
For this project we worked directly with Shared Harvest Food Bank in Fairfield, Ohio. Student in first bell were encouraged to bring in can food items to donate. The classes that brought in the most canned food items would receive a cookies/milk party provided by Contemporary Cuisine classes. Making it a competition sparked the interest of many students. In weeks before the drive, students made announcements and hung flyers around the school.
If we were doing this project again, we would spend more time promoting the project and giving daily results in who was leading the contest.
We are most proud that we were able to help feed families in our community during this holiday season. It is an incredible feeling to know that we were able to collect 500 lbs. of food to donate to help the town Fairfield.
Students and administrators at Butler Tech can submit their projects to us for inclusion on the website. Please only submit projects with appropriate content and that are clearly documented with instructions and outlines, including photos and other references to help readers.
