Smart Lunch, Smart Kids
Today was an amazing day in Kindergarten! Our overarching STEM unit is how to get fresh fruits and vegetables to food deserts or to people who essentially do not have easy access to it. Thanks to the amazing efforts of Mrs, Baerman we were able to connect with an organization called "Smart Lunch, Smart Kids" at Oak Grove Methodist Church that packs lunches every single Wednesday during the school year and deliveres them to Montclair Elementary School.
Our students were given the opportunity to pack healthy lunches for students at Montclair Elementary to have over the weekend who would not usually be able to afford healthy food at home. Montclair is located less than 4 miles from Briarlake and is essentially right it our own backyard! 95% of their students receive free or reduced lunch.
Our classroom parents donated all of the fresh fruits and Oak Grove Methodist Church donated everything else from their food pantry. Today we packed 140 sack lunches for the students to receive on Friday! We are so proud of our students and hope to team up again with this organization in the future!
