City Park Elementary School - Super Panthers & Helping Hands Ending Hunger
City Park Elementary School - Super Panthers show us how they handle the collection, categorization and distribution of unopened packaged food items, collected from the meals served at school. The children take their jobs seriously knowing the good they are doing. They follow a step by step processing outline created by Helping Hands Ending Hunger... A process that will provide nutritional food products in the fight against hunger, saving good untouched products from going to waste, something that also brings two (2) hidden benefits: 1.) Reducing the production of CO2 by not throwing food away. 2.) Providing nutritious meals to those who might go hungry otherwise.
