Physician Assistant M.S.
Nine months out of the year, students within the United States attend elementary school to be educated on English, mathematics, history, and other topics. The Anoka- Hennepin School District’s philosophy of an elementary education highlights many important factors for success in school but neglects to highlight nutrition as one of the factors. The purpose of our community outreach project is aimed at reducing the stress of hunger for the students at Evergreen Elementary School (EES) by implementing a food drive. Through the food drive, the project team members were able to collect various donations including food, clothing items, and hygiene products for the children and their families at EES. The food drive could be improved in future community outreach projects through the ability to extend the amount of time of the drive and have a central hub for a donation bin accessible to students and faculty daily.
