Elementary students Learning to Give by making lunches for homeless

The students at Edison Elementary School in Westland spread a lot of love along with peanut butter and jelly today when they made bag lunches for the homeless members of our community.

During their Life Skills class the students, with assistance from district staff, made a “Lunch of Love” which included a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, chips, granola bars and water packed in a hand-decorated bag. Each bag also included a student-written inspirational message.

This project was made possible by a grant through Learning To Give, called Lunches of Love. They provided $500 for supplies. Additionally, the students brought in jars of peanut butter.

“Our students have been learning about the community, giving, hunger, how to be a philanthropist and what that means for the past several weeks in Life Skills,” said Amy Peters, an instructional coach at Edison Elementary School. “These kids are beyond excited to make a difference to someone during this service learning project!”

The lunches will be delivered to  Full Gospel Temple's overnight warming station located in Westland.
