By Kate Peterson, 7th Grade
Last year I was volunteering at Interfaith Community Services and a group of women came in with hundreds of sack lunches to donate. They shared that hundreds of families in San Diego are food insecure and don’t have enough money to afford food for their entire family. When I heard about the Change Makers elective at Rhoades, I knew it was the perfect elective for me. I could not make hundreds of lunches by myself, so I thought of getting my whole seventh grade class involved. I love the idea of the whole grade coming together to change hundreds of family’s lives. This week the seventh graders brought in supplies and packed 120 lunches, which I delivered to Interfaith Community Services. This year we plan to pack 900 lunches to help feed food insecure families in North County San Diego.
