Welcome to Hailey Lampi's Silver Award Project!

The reason I am doing this Food Drive has a lot to do with it's name: 365 Food Drive:
You know when you go into a grocery store or market around Christmas or Thanksgiving, and you see those big bins that you can put canned foods in to be donated? But what happens during the rest of the year, when those food bins aren't out? The food banks don't receive much food, and that means very little food for the people who need it.   I have decided to do this food drive during April to show that the hungry need food all year round, not just at the holidays.  

Did you know that many school age children rely on the free lunch at school to be their only real meal of the day? And that these same kids, during summer when school is out, often don't get enough to eat?  The food bank that this food drive benefits feeds those same children during the summer when they need it the most. I don't think any child should go hungry when so many others have so much. 

I chose to do a food drive for my Silver Award because I want to help people with hunger. Being a teenager, I know how much food  people  need to keep their brains sharp and their body energized. Hearing that some families struggle to buy food is something I hate to hear.  As a Brownie and a Junior, my troop has organized smaller scale food drives. We collected around nine hundred pounds of food. For this 365 Food Drive, I would like to surpass one thousand pounds. Wouldn't it be great to double that amount?
