To share their successful Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) with Parkwood Baptist’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry, funded in part by the grant, Ragsdale put together a table display for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event held on Monday, January 16th at Four Seasons Town Center Mall.
On Saturday, November 19th, fresh student grown pesticide free greens harvested the day before made it to Parkwood Baptist’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry. A flyer highlighting some of the health benefits of eating more greens was also included in the delivery.
Ragsdale High School’s Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) setup to benefit Hand to Hand will continue with regular monthly deliveries for the rest of the school year.
On Friday, November 18th, Ragsdale High School completed it’s November harvest of 3 Portable Garden Bins (two 18 bottle and one 12 bottle).
The two Scientific Visualization (SciVis) classes will be adding more bins to the harvest in the next month.
On Wednesday evening, November 16th, Ragsdale High School joined 14 other schools in Guilford County to receive a “Gift of Giving” grant sponsored by Four Seasons Town Centre. The grant is made in partnership with Guilford County Schools’ (GCS) Character Development Initiative to fund programs that promote student service-learning.
Part of the Ragsdale’s grant money will go toward adding five more Portable Gardens to its existing Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) to benefit Parkwood Baptist Church’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry.
In mid-January 2017, a :30 second video of this project in action will be shown by GCS and local media.
Sponsored by Sonya Hamilton of State Farm, the CFPP was setup to benefit Parkwood Baptist Church’s Hand to Hand Food Pantry with monthly deliveries of nutritious greens grown in class by 1st & 2nd Block SciVis students.
“This year, Pendrak expanded the Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline project to both her Science Visualization classes from just one last year. She plans to have the two classes compete against each other to see who can grow the most food based on weight. The CFPP will be providing weight data for students to use in the statistics and charting part of her SciVis curriculum.”
