PROJECT OVERVIEW & PURPOSE
Hunger. We see it everyday; it lives in our community and the impact is devastating. What we know is, as Senior Nutrition Policy Advisor Sam Kass succinctly states, “when we give our kids the nourishment they need, we give them the chance to thrive, both in the classroom and beyond.” The goal of The Nourishment They Need Proposal is twofold: teach students to deeply understand nutrition while providing the space, time, and knowledge for the surrounding community to grow the food they need.
Students have developed a sense of responsibility while persevering through each stage of their work. Additionally, students have expand their ability to show respect and compassion for people in their home community, resulting in students taking the necessary steps in becoming ethical people that contribute to a better world.
Each grade level within this project allowed students to craft, design, critique and produce an authentic, high quality final product. Accuracy, care, and precision were included when completing these beautiful pieces.
