With Project Bread's Holiday Spoons Project, you can engage your students about hunger right here in Massachusetts and empower them to make a difference. Participating classrooms also have a chance to be entered to win 100 IMAX tickets to Jordan's Furniture IMAX Theatre for their school.
It's that time of year again—time for our Holiday Spoons Project! There were so many great spoons created for our 2017 Holiday Spoons Contest, and we are looking forward to seeing what this year will bring.
When you see a spoon, you probably think of eating soup, cereal, or frozen yogurt. Of course, all of those foods are great, but it is also important to recognize that many people do not have enough to eat.
We can do something to help, and teach our students that they can, too. By engaging students in the Holiday Spoons curriculum, we can teach children about hunger and how they have the power to make a difference in their communities.
Here's how you can get involved in the Holiday Spoons Project:
Lead your students in a lesson about hunger, building an understanding of what is behind the Holiday Spoons Project.
Check out fun Decorative Tips and help your students tranform ordinary wooden spoons into works of art.
By using our Holiday Spoons Fundraising Tips, help your students serve their communities by selling their spoons and collecting donations that will go directly toward fighting hunger in Massachusetts.
Email photos of your students' spoons to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, December 19 at 5 p.m. to enter our online photo contest for a chance to win 100 tickets to the Sunbrella IMAX Theater at Jordan's Furniture in Natick or Reading.
Voting will take begin on Thursday, December 20 at noon and close on Monday, January 7 at 7:00pm.
Project Bread staff would love to visit your school to thank the community for your participation. We are availble to come to school-wide assemblies or to individual classrooms to discuss the impact of students' hard work and dedication. In addition to giving thanks, Project Bread staff will highlight the anti-hunger programs benefitting from this fundraiser.
