The following article was written by one of our Edna Leader journalists:
Did you see the Harvest Festival assembly on Tuesday 8th November? It was all about the crops that we buy (and take for granted!) and how we are lucky to be able to have access to these foods. This was an event for us to count our blessings and realise there are still people out there with no food at all.
We are also lucky to have Reverend Megan come in and speak to us on a regular basis in school. At our Harvest Festival, she encouraged us to think about the food choices we have because not everyone has the luxury of choice. We watched a video about children putting ideas forward to help people who are not as fortunate as us at Edna G. Olds Academy as we are lucky to get the things that are provided by the school.
So what can you do to help others? Not just in terms of food, but in general. At Edna G. Olds Academy, we came up with our own ideas:
"I think that we should give food that we would normally waste to the poor as they are not as fortunate as we are."
"Donate more food to these poor souls."
"Stop wasting food."
What ideas can you think of to help?
