Service Project: Food Bank Collection

Donating to a local food bank, was one of the first service projects I included Afton in.
I had her choose some food from our stores and from the grocery store and explained to her that some families don't have enough food to eat every day. She was so excited to share!

This sad concept resonates easily with young children. They are eager to participate and sweetly sensitive to children just like themselves who may not get to eat dinner every day.

You can donate food to one of the many food collection boxes that pop up round town this time of year, or you can go to the Feeding America website and find your local food bank. Taking a tour of these important facilities will have a lasting impact on your children and on yourself.
