September is No Kid Hungry Month. No Kid Hungry is Bethel Public Schools’ opportunity to be a part of a movement that has a real and lasting impact on the mission to end hunger in America!
Students and staff please spread the word about hunger awareness and GO ORANGE on Friday, September 27th!
We will be holding a food drive at all Bethel Public Schools on Friday, September 27th and encourage students to donate a kid-friendly food item; kid-friendly means that it can be opened and consumed without adult assistance.
These items will be distributed by school social workers and other agencies RIGHT HERE IN BETHEL!
Popular items at our food drive last year were macaroni & cheese, pre-packed snacks (i.e. pudding), pop-top soups. Please bring your item to your school’s cafeteria on Friday, September 23rd.
Ways to show your support:
• Wear ORANGE clothes
• Decorate your classroom or doors in ORANGE
• Donate a canned or dry good item for our 5th annual food drive<
• There will also be a jar at each school for teachers and students to donate dollar bills or loose change to this cause.
However you choose to participate, THANK YOU for your commitment to end childhood hunger in our Community!
