Students Aid Food Cupboard
The Kindergarten and First Grade groups at The Downtown School recently completed a month-long study of the Community Food Cupboard. The study is part of their year-long investigation into the interconnectedness and interdependence of communities. The students worked at the Food Cupboard, interviewed manager Martha Carey, learned about how the Food Cupboard gets and distributes its food, wrote a book about the Food Cupboard, and, as their culminating project, ran a food drive including creating signs and posters, communicating with parents, and collecting over 100 items for the Cupboard. In addition, the students at The Downtown School visited the Burr and Burton Academy Mountain Campus to learn about their food drive, and shared their book and their signs and posters with students at the Mountain Campus.
