Learning About Social Responsibility First Hand

Food Drive

Once again this year, our school together with the support of the Roden school council will participate in the local community food drive for the Glen Rhodes Food Bank. Mr. Mighton and the grade 8 students along with Ms. Vacrinos and the JK/SK students will be working on signs to help promote the event.

This is an excellent opportunity for all students to learn about social responsibility and to participate first hand, by helping to shop for and to deliver the food donation items to the school.

The drive will run from December 1-15th and food donations can be dropped off in the main lobby or in the JK/SK area.

The foods most needed are:

  • canned vegetables
  • pasta/ pasta sauce
  • canned fruit
  • 100% fruit juice
  • rice
  • high fibre/low sugar cereal
  • oatmeal
  • flour
  • granola bars
  • canned meat in water
  • canned fish (tuna in water)
  • dried/canned beans
  • peanut butter
  • powdered millk
  • baby food (vegetables and fruit)/ baby cereal/ baby formula
  • Thank you in advance for your support.
