Carnival Project makes big donation to fight hunger

Second grade is not too young to teach business principles to children. That was the main goal of the Carnival Project at Stadium Drive Elementary. But the big payoff was giving back to the community. A total of 1,764 pounds of food was donated to Second Harvest Food Bank to be distributed to area food pantries, including the Pantry at Boardman Center Intermediate School.

The Carnival ran at the end of March, and second graders organized all the activities including refreshments, an arcade, game station, face painting, and pin the tail. Students who attended got extra tickets if they brought in non perishable food items.

"This is part of our economics unit," said second grade teacher Brittany Krestel. "The booths are all student run and planned with little help from their teachers. We were so excited to bring in 1900 food items this year, all while our students had a good time and learned some basic business principles."
