Did you know that this week is National Ag Week?
What can an ag school do to learn about ag week?
Do something with food of course.
Our school has been collecting cans of food for a food drive. And today we went a HUGE Food Bank in Wichita to see what will happen to the food we collected.
It was an amazing day that started with a sunny 40 minute drive on a school bus.
The K, 1, and 2 classes toured the food bank (which was cool) while the 3 and 4 classes sorted food and packed food backpacks.
Here is my class with the cool, big backpack.
Next stop... a soup kitchen. This place only serves the evening meal, but cooks/prepares for 5 or so different locations. The grownups really got it--the thankfulness of having a home, kitchen, and money to buy food. The kids loved the walk-in freezers.
We ate our packed lunches here.
Our plan was to go to a park and play, but the rain came.
We settled for a noisy, sleepy bus ride back to school and some library and music time.
Yes, it was a great day. So glad we stepped out of our secure little bubble (school) and experienced two organizations that do so much with donations from people all over the USA.
