High Point Friends School has begun collecting empty water bottles in its school cafeteria for use in constructing more portable gardens to grow food to feed nearby Food Pantries in High Point, NC.
More schools have expressed interest and we hope to have updates on more Bottle Drives before the end of the school year.
As part of our Food Bike program, we’re in the process of adding more portable gardens at Ragsdale High School with the goal of staggering their growing cycle so there’s a harvest ready each week to be taken to Renaissance Church’s Food Bank.
On Wednesday, April 6th, Jamestown News did a story on ReBuildUp’s Food Bike program at Ragsdale High School featuring students playing a nutritional card game, growing food in class to be delivered to nearby Renaissance Church’s Food Bank, along with a contest for the best home grown bottle lettuce. This was made possible by sponsor Michael Robinson Accounting along with the aid of the Greater High Point Food Alliance to line up the Food Bank.
