Kindergarten donates 630 lbs. of fruit to Second Harvest Food Bank

Kindergarteners at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School have been studying how fruits and vegetables grow, while learning valuable lessons about need and hunger. For three days in December students and parent volunteers collected donations of citrus fruit to be sorted, counted and weighed as part of a math lesson.

The children filled a truck bed with more than 1,000 oranges, lemons, grapefruit and other fruits to deliver 630 lbs. to Second Harvest Food Bank. The service project helped them learn the importance of giving to hunger relief. If you missed this drive and have excess citrus fruit, Second Harvest is holding a Citrus Gleaning Day on Jan. 26, 2013.
