Maddi's Fridge - 1st Grade Food Drive

Maddi's Fridge Food Drive 

In first grade, we are learning about making text-to-world connections. Our book of the week, Maddi's Fridge, brings to light the very real topic of childhood hunger. As we read this book as a class, we talked about some of the difficult realities that come with this topic. We know there are real people in our world, country, state, and even our town that face hunger due to a lack of food. 

Our first graders have decided that they want to do something about this problem. We have decided to hold a Maddi's Fridge food drive and we want our whole district and town to participate! We will be collecting canned and boxed goods now through Friday, November 18th. Pictured is a list of most needed items, but we will gratefully take any non-perishable donations! Our main food donation drop off will be at Gunter Elementary during school hours! For your convenience, you may also drop items off at Gunter High School, Gunter Middle School and the administration building during school hours!
