My Small Move

My students had been complaining about the pre-made snacks we received from the city and wanted healthier options. The problem was that we did not have the funds, and I did not have time to work on this alone. The students decided that they would draft a program around their wanting this option, so they could ask local stores and community organizations for money to fund their program. They created a budget that included storage, how much it would cost for a years worth of fresh fruits, veggies, and grains. They talked with the principal about where we could store our foods, since our program is in a school, and created jobs for them each to hold. Long story short they were able to raise enough money for a new refrigerator, kitchen supplies, and enough food for 40 students for an entire school year (discounted of course)! Here is their story in  Star Trek comic form, because who doesn't love Star Trek?
