FDL HS Service Learning Students Field Trip

FDL High School’s Food/Family/Society students in Mrs. Walker’s class recently participated in a service-learning field trip to Lake View Place. Students served banana bars and brownies that they had prepared for the residents, and then played bingo and handed out prizes that were either made or purchased by them.  Prizes included the students’ home-made desserts, crossword puzzle books, stuffed animals, candy, and books. Students discussed with the residents how the manner of getting and using food has changed throughout time, and came to understand how food, family, and societies can affect each other. Shown here enjoying a game of bingo were (left and then clockwise) Joseph Schwartz, Harold Bond, Lorraine Higgins, Jade Gaffney (hidden), Jacy Klaske and Bernice Wittig.
