All students and families will be asked to estimate the total weight of food collected and bring in fresh, washed produce and other fresh items, along with a recipe suggestion for how to put the ingredients together to make a meal. Recipes can be for salads, soups, or meals that incorporate packaged goods (like a pasta or rice dish). We'll also have a few activities for the different age groups.
Middle school students: Will help package and prepare the fresh produce, which will include writing notes/recipes to accompany our donations.
Upper elementary students: You will help sort and weigh the items to prepare for delivery to PORCH.
Lower elementary students: We need help with decorating containers for the recipe items and other donations, as well as assistance with weeding the gardens.
Can't make it? We still need your help! We will be collecting non-perishable items (such as canned goods) starting tomorrow January 7th, until Friday January 17th. There will be a collection bin at both entrances (HAC & Main Building). Please wait to donate fresh produce until the day of the event.
Note: This is meant to be a meaningful family event, connecting our community to the larger Durham community. Please be sure to accompany your child throughout the event. If you can't stay for the entire duration, drop-ins are more than welcome! If you have any questions about the event, please reach out to Kiera Olson.
Our resident Girl Scout troop #3579 is operating a book swap at TDS on Friday, the 24th of January, from 3.30-5.30pm. Please bring your used books that you are ready to pass on to future readers (children’s through young adult), and swap them for “new” used books! The book swap will operate on a one-for-one swap or you can also buy any book for a $1.00. Any books left over will be donated to Book Harvest. This is a great way to “level-up” your library, so please join us!
