Juliana Robinson, 4th grade student at Enterprise Elementary, wanted to make sure others in the community don’t go hungry. She started a food drive at her school the first week of March to give items to the Kansas Food Bank. She and her classmates made posters to promote the food drive and made daily stops in each classroom to allow students to donate their items. A poster at the front of the school keeps a tally of how many items have been collected and how much each classroom has collected.
So far, the drive has collected more than 1,000 food items.
“It’s good to help others, and it feels good to know that the food will do that,” Robinson said.
