Leal MS accepts and conquers “Operation: End Hunger”
Posted on 12/09/2016

Leal Middle School students collected 562 pounds of food, which equates to 439 meals for hungry South Texans, during a food drive for the San Antonio Food Bank.

The project-based learning advisory of seventh grade teacher Cynthia Ramos led the “Operation: End Hunger” food drive during the month of November. Students researched the causes, effects, and solutions of world hunger, discovering startling statistics such as the fact that 17 million kids in America do not have enough to eat. In Bexar County, 25 percent of children struggle with food insecurity.

“The students were very surprised by what they found, and they wanted to do something to help our community,” Ramos said.

Students developed a slogan, made posters, and decorated 50 collection boxes, picking up donations from classes weekly and keeping track of the totals.

Leal robotics teacher Gabriel Garcia and his classes collected the most food by collecting 345 non-perishable items.

 “Students learned that even they can make small difference in our community,” Ramos said.
