Centerville FCCLA- My Plate is Your Plate!
Centerville High School FCCLA spent time at Centerville Elementary making sure 1st graders were aware of the MyPlate.gov guidelines. By playing nutrition games, presenting nutrition information to classes and also, creating informative bulletin boards chapter members were able to make sure 6 and 7-year-olds had the nutritional knowledge to make healthy choices. This group also hosted a new type of food drive idea for the community. The DRIVE-THRU food drive allowed the community to drive through during the morning to bring non-perishable and cash donations to benefit the Leona Food Pantry. This activity happened just before the holiday break, a time of the year that shows an increase in the distribution of food at the local pantry.
The Drive-Thru Food Drive brought in 723 food items and cash donations!
