Future Generation Supports Foodshare

Foodshare's Fundraising Events Specialist, Al Marino, recently had a heartwarming visit to The Master's School in West Simsbury.

Approximately thirty 4th and 5th graders had the opportunity to hear Al speak about Foodshare and the important work we do for our hungry neighbors.

They, in turn, shared the results of their recent Ten Talents Project.

Each student had been given $5 and were asked to brainstorm with family and friends to find ways  to take the $5 and expand it to help our neighbors in need.  Household chores, bake sales and small business ideas were all projects that the students used to make the money grow.  Foodshare was chosen as one of the charities to share in the profits.  Al was thrilled to receive a check from the students for an amazing $1,152, which is enough to help Foodshare provide over 2,800 meals! 

We tip our caps off to Mrs. Blanchard and Mrs. Mancini for teaching the students the importance of sharing and giving back!
