Rainier Valley Food Bank connections!

Mr. C and I are really trying to have students connect with their community and really feel that they are making a difference. We have partnered with the Rainier Valley Food Bank, to share our harvest and give students a real look at food security and poverty in south Seattle.

We got a brief rundown of the operation there from their director Sam. He told us that 75% of the population that uses the food bank in Chinese and SE Asian. As he was talking with us, a woman with a cart full of our collard greens rolled by. WOW! This was a powerful experience for students.
