Millgrove School Students Take Their Food Bank Proposal to City Council.

 

 

Students Elana Longridge and Gabriel Lacasse and their teacher Jennifer Kershaw make a presentation to council Monday afternoon. The three headed up a group of 9 students from Millgrove who gave up 2 recesses a week since January to conduct their research and come up with a plan. The students interviewed food banks, grocery store managers, restauranteurs, and farmers. They learned about the tremendous amount of food waste and the need for food to help those falling into poverty. They want the city to put cold storage trucks on the road that will pick up food from the grocery stores and deliver to the food banks. They have already found out that Quebec has done a one-year pilot project (called the SRP) and they want Hamilton to do the same.
