We did it!! The 2nd graders at ESC brought in 813 items (with more still rolling in)
to be donated to the food bank and this is what it looks like. We have learned so much from this project, but most importantly that it doesn't matter how old you are you can make a difference. Thank you for all of the support!!

My second grade students are challenging others. See their challenge below!
(Insert your school name here),
Would you like to join the Food Drive Challenge with East
Sac Elementary School in Sac City, Iowa? The challenge is to bring in 600 items or
more for your local food bank. We have over 55 people in Sac County who take
food from the food bank, which is about 30 families who would be hungry without
the help of our food bank. When our food bank runs out of food they have to go
to Des Moines, Iowa to get more.
Will you accept our challenge? Our teacher thought it might
be a lot of work, but we have proven her wrong. Our 2nd grade class
at ESC has planned the whole thing! We read the book If the World Was a Village
that taught us almost half the people in the world don’t have enough food to
eat. We wanted to do something to help! We started with visiting our local food
bank and asked them questions. They told us they needed items like canned goods
and things like shampoo and toilet paper. We then created a marketing
committee, a data keeping committee and a group to collect all of the food. We
decided to challenge the other grades to see who could bring in the most and
that is why we want to challenge you too! We will have our challenge from April
9th-23rd. Do you think you could beat our goal of 600
items? We will let you know how many items we bring in when we finish our
If you have any questions our teacher Mrs. Voyles would love
to answer them. She might even ask us for our help! We are so excited, please
join our challenge!
