Help me give my students a life lesson in grocery shopping necessities and how to help the environment using organic grocery bags and a wagon.
My high school is made up of about 700 students. Many of those students are considered living in poverty. Many students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Students in foods courses get a sneak peek at the food service industry. In this course, students focus on ServSafe, knife skills, entrepreneurship, yeast breads, and cake decorating. By the end of the course, students know what culinary skills are expected of a potential food employee. Soft skills are also emphasized as an important key to any job.
Students often see that there are simply groceries in the cabinets and in the refrigerators and that they are ready to cook. They do not see the extent to which I must go to the grocery store and purchase their items. Then I bring them back to school and put them away where they are needed because I do this before students come to class or after school hours.
I would like reusable shopping bags and a wagon as a way to be able to talk about the need of protecting and helping our environment by doing our part with shopping.
The wagon would allow me to bring the groceries in from my car more easily. Instead of making multiple trips and planning for this time, I could transport the groceries easily to my classroom from the parking lot. I usually recycle the plastic bags from the store but I could show the students that by using the reusable bags, we could do our part in creating less stress on the environment.
