We will start by advertising for this food drive in our school newsletter, posters, and by visiting each classroom. Then, we will have children bring non-perishable foods to their classes. We are aware that not many people are motivated to donate food, so we will host a pizza party for the class that has the most weight of food per student. At the end of the month, we will collect and weigh the food to determine the winner and deliver the food to the local orphanages.

Make my friends and family aware of the project and that I would like to collect food instead of gifts to give to it to the local nonprofit organization. Have my birthday/party and collect the food.

We will create a school flower and vegetable garden and harvest and share the produce. We will ask for donations from local stores to help with the costs. Students and staff at the school will maintain the garden.

My friends and I will organize to have a food drive outside a popular grocery store in our town and then stand there all day collecting goods. After we will bring the donations to our local nonprofit who will distribute the goods to families who need it.

ECMS-Inglewood Green Ambassador program will connect students to their community through the cultivating of a community vegetable garden. Over the course of the spring, students in their classes, will plan, cultivate, maintain, and curate the garden, and the harvest will be shared with community, both within and outside of the school, at a fall harvest-environmental festival. At this festival, students will give harvested food away to parents as well as local neighbors. They will grow seedlings and teach families how to plant and grow their own home gardens. Throughout the spring, volunteer guest speakers will work with students to understand and analyze food-related issues facing urban communities.

Our project is focused on rising first grade students and uses hands on mentoring and role modeling from teenagers in my Roots & Shoots group. The students’ overall literacy will be improved as we encourage the kids with guided and self-selected reading, writing and mastering new words. We are collaborating with our local YMCA to work with and identify the children, who will be from lower income/under-resourced populations and who are a full grade level behind in reading. Our approach will be multifaceted. Weekly we will work with the kids at the Y or at a local school. We will be teaching them through fun activities based on Dr. Goodall and her work. The reading and literacy skills will be built into the programs. Physical activities, STEM projects and art will be priorities as well in our mentoring process. We will film segments of the mentoring process and create a short film upon completion of the project at the end of summer 2015, reinforcing what the kids have learned as they also become "movie stars." We hope to follow these kids through grade 5 and document their success. In addition to mentoring this specific group of children, we mentor kids in other settings such as the library, schools and even girl scout troops. Our activities are all based on Dr. Goodall and her work. The kids love it!

Throughout the week before Thanksgiving, the Roots & Shoots club will collect the food and goods from our school's community. In addition to this we will wrap and decorate boxes to later put the donations in. This project will take time and a lot of participants to set up collection areas, hand decorate the boxes and other aspects of the project.

On September 11th 2014, our high school's Roots & Shoots club will set up an area in the middle of our student center and all day long collect, stack and organize the nonperishable food donated to us. We will have volunteers and club members collect the donations in the designated area and after school count the total number of donations received. All goods collected will then be taken to Neighbor To Neighbor, our town's local nonprofit organization, who will give the food to families who need them supporting those less fortunate and showing how we can all make a difference one donation at a time.
