In November, Ragsdale High School became one of 15 schools in Guilford County to be selected for the Gift of Giving Grant sponsored by Four Seasons Town Center.
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.
After the ceremony, Ragsdale was presented with a plaque commemorating their achievement.
The final step of the Ragsdale High School CFPP pilot is complete with students growing, harvesting, and now delivering food to Renaissance Road Food Bank.
The teacher fills out the form for where and when to deliver.
A Renaissance Road volunteer signs the Food Slip to confirm the delivery and the student returns the form to receive service hours.
On Wednesday, April 6th, ReBuildUp’s Food Bike program at Ragsdale High School was showcased in the High Point Enterprise. Held during Winter 2016, Food Bike had students grow food at home for cash prizes along with in class to help nearby Renaissance Church’s Food Bank. A nutritional card game was also played by students.
Thanks to Michael Robinson Accounting for sponsoring along with the Greater High Point Food Alliance (GHPFA) for connecting Ragsdale to Renaissance Church’s Food Bank.
