EXPO 5th Grade Food Drive

Our 5th grade leadership team is organizing a food drive May 1-31. All donations will be going to the Neighborhood House in St. Paul to benefit local families. If you are able to donate, consider donating in the following categories:

  • Pre-K/K: toiletries, baby food/formula, diapers

  • 1 and ½ split (Ulla): snack foods (popcorn, fruit snacks, etc.)

  • 2: breakfast foods (coffee, oatmeal, breakfast bars, pop tarts, etc.)

  • 3: lunch foods (rice, beans, canned meat/fish, peanut butter, etc.)

  • 4: dinner foods (oil, pasta, pasta sauce, etc.)

  • 5: canned vegetables/fruit

*All donations are great and obviously there is overlap between categories.

The 5th grade leadership team will count donations and the two classrooms with the highest numbers (one from preK-2 and one from grades 3-5) will have a reward to be decided on by the 5th grade leaders. Thank you!
