Keeping Cool

Help me give my students a place to store their beverages, snacks, and lunches to keep them cool and prevent spoilage.

My Students

My students are a diverse, sweet group of kids. They are very eager to learn and have really missed school. They have been so excited to be back in school. Their favorite time of day is story time with me.

My Project

My classroom fridge stopped working. There is no money in the school budget to replace it. My students now cannot keep their drinks, snacks, or lunches cold. I am concerned about spoilage and food poisoning if they forget to use an ice pack. My students store their lunches in the fridge daily. They also store their water bottles in them to keep them cold. We live in Florida so cold water is a necessity, especially now that they cannot use the school water fountains. It will also keep extra snacks cold.
