Each year, the fifth grade class takes a field trip to Feed My Starving Children. While there, students package food for malnourished children in countries in need. Students get to experience hands-on the impact that they can have in helping others have a better life.
This is always a highlight of the year for students, and they have a lot of fun working alongside their classmates, parents, and other people from the community. The students leave the field trip understanding the great impact they have had, by being able to put a number of meals prepared to the faces of the children in need. After all of the food has been prepared, and the counts have been made, we end the field trip by praying together over the meals, and the people who have prepared them and will receive them.
