The charity was started by San Francisco Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt. He and representatives from Generation Alive came to Northwood today to share about the issue of hunger worldwide and small ways that we can make a big difference. Over the course of the next six weeks, we will be asking students to give, make and send a meal. This is not a fundraiser. In fact, we’re telling students not to ask parents, neighbors, family or friends for money. We’re simply asking students if they’d be willing to give $3 of their own money (a typical school lunch cost) to buy and then later make meals for others who are dying of hunger today. Generation Alive is coming back on April 2nd with the dry food materials necessary to make meals. We’ll then join as 7th grade teams again and set up assembly lines to actually make the meals that will be sent. What we love about these projects is the ability of 7th grade students to do the work themselves of making a real and tangible difference.
