Amelia students combat hunger

January 21st, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

According to Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States, at least 10 percent of the children in each state, or 12 million children nationwide, suffer from hunger.

Hunger affects nearly every community. Almost 12 percent of rural households and nine percent of suburban families struggle with food insecurity.

Amelia High School’s Thespian Troupe #6332, Drama Club and Student Council teamed up this year to help alleviate hunger in their community by participating in the 2009 Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat (TOTS-EAT) food drive.

Members of Thespian Troupe 6332 collected food for Tots -Eat.
Through a schoolwide food drive and other school and community collections, Amelia High School collected 882 pounds of canned and dry goods for Grace and Mercy Outreach in Amelia.

TOTS-EAT is the International Thespian Society's (ITS) annual nationwide community service initiative to collect food for the hungry.
