On Friday February 9th, Paul Hopkins (Hop), science teacher at The Grammar School, delivered 154 lb. of food collected during their January food drive. Each food item brought in gave that student the chance to take part in taping Hop to the auditorium wall with duct tape. Hop says, “I called it an art installation in honor of the Foodshelf. My goal was to raise enough food that the duct tape applied would allow me to stay stuck to the wall even when the benches were removed. Alas, it did not work (as there is an art to duct tape application), but we got the kids involved.”
The Foodshelf is thankful for the work TGS does not only donating much-needed food, but in raising student awareness about the needs of those in their community. Each September, they Fill the Bus to help us Top our Truck — our biggest annual food drive. In November, they put together and donate baskets for our Thanksgiving Harvest Bag event where we send recipients home with dinner fixings for a Thanksgiving meal along with a $10 Hannaford gift card for purchasing their turkey. We love this school’s support!
