Elementary Students Present Community Hunger Research
The presentations centered on topics such as food waste, emergency food pantries, and food nutrition
WEST FARGO, N.D. – Fourth graders at Washington Elementary are taking hunger food research into their own hands.
Students and their Concordia College mentors presented their displays at West Fargo’s Family Fare.
Each group of students spent more than two months researching ways to combat hunger in the community.
The presentations centered on topics such as food waste, emergency food pantries, and food nutrition.
“It’s been a great bond, you’ve seen them grow as good friends but also put together great work over time, a lot of great cooperation,” Washington Elementary teacher Mark Seeba said. “It’s eye opening for them to see just how much people in our community are in need.”
After visiting Family Fare, the students went to an emergency food pantry to put together birthday bags for people in need.
