The Problem

Many people in our community do not have enough money to feed their families. We are taking part in a service learning project regarding the statistics around hunger. Our students do not understand the magnitude of hunger and that even within our own school we have families in need.

Our Plan

Students will research statistics around hunger in the United States and in New York. We will join with many other schools on Staten Island to collect food for the Bread of Life Food drive run by alumni of the Notre Dame Society. Also, a member of our school community passed away over the summer at the age of 52. She was the coordinator of the food drive in past years with her special needs classes. The drive will continue this year in her honor.
