September 2018 was the start of a wonderful endeavor by some of our high school students. Students, in conjunction with Related Services were given the opportunity to give back to the community by providing hand-bagged lunches for the homeless.
This project was started by educating students on the plight of the homeless, with the help from SFSS. This was an eye opening experience, ensuring that students were emotionally invested and not just going through the motions. After the students connected with the need, it was smooth sailing from there. They quickly moved into planning health conscious and economical meals, creating flyers to gather donations, purchasing supplies, and finally making the lunches.
Several months into the program they are still going strong and have even progressed to making lunches for a Women’s and Children’s shelter for those in crisis.
