Students Help with Maryland Food Bank

On November 5, 2018, High Road School of Baltimore County had the opportunity to volunteer at a local Maryland Food Bank. There were 19 students and 5 staff that attended this event to connect with their surrounding community and give back to those in need. This event is referred to as a Community Based Instruction, in which our students were able to interact and learn about the needs of their community, and how to help “their neighbor.” The students and staff were able to assist 800 families at this event. During the event, the students helped unpack the food from the truck, sort and put the food into food packages, and then hand out these packages to the families. This opportunity allowed the students to interact with their community and make connections with the families that were there. There were also some families with children that were the same ages as the students and the students were able to talk with them and listen to their stories. This was an eye-opening experience for our students to help others in need. The students thoroughly enjoyed this event and we are working on making plans to attend future outreach events!
