With Summer pretty much here to stay for a little while, our schooling has slowed down tremendously. Kayla is only doing math right now and everything else has pretty much been finished. She still has a few lessons yet left to do but while she is finishing those up, we are taking on a few community service projects to give back to our town and to help end hunger — something that is near and dear to our hearts.
5 Community Projects Your Homeschooler Can Participate In
Serve at a Soup Kitchen
One of our favorite community projects is serving at a soup kitchen. Giving back to people who have fallen on hard times seems like a great way to make ourselves useful.
Our group went last year to one in our area. For some of the teenagers in our group, this was this first time ever serving and they really enjoyed doing it.
Prepare a meal for your pastor
Pastor Appreciation Month is in October, but for us, we love to surprise our pastor all the time with treats and meals for him and his family.
This time around, we simply bagged up some of our favorite Tyson frozen food items along with a few essentials like taco shells, peanut butter, and soup and will be dropping that off sometime today so that they don’t have to worry about cooking anything for a few days.
Recently, I heard about Tyson’s partnership with Champions for Kids on a project called, #SummerofGiving. Every time you purchase a specially marked bag of Tyson products, they’ll donate a meal to a child in need. Ending hunger is an important goal for Tyson and they’re dedicated to making people aware of the hunger problem in their own communities through their KNOW hunger campaign.
Not only that, but Walmart has promised to feed 5 million kids this summer as well! I love when companies give back and promote doing good. So head to your local Walmart and pick up a few bags of Tyson Frozen Foods. You can find them in the frozen food section, and be sure to look for the specially marked Summer of Giving poster to lead you in the right direction.
Prepare Lunch for My Husband and His Workers
My husband does construction for a living and in our community workers homeschool book, construction workers rank right at the top of the list, so we love to make lunch for my husband and his crew from time to time.
Sometimes they come for lunch, but then sometimes my daughter and I pack up everything and take it to the job site. They love when we bring yummy goodies like Tyson Anytizers Honey BBQ Wings and Honey Battered Chicken Nuggets.
Put together a bag of canned goods and food for the mailman
During May, the USPS does a canned good drive and we always try to participate. We go to the local grocery store and load up at least two brown bags full of canned goods for this community project
Cooking for My Own Family
I do consider cooking for my own family a community service project — when we are out doing ministry projects in the community. After a long hard day of working and doing something to positively affect our area, we come back home and I pop in some delicious nuggets and fries and we all sit down and talk about what impacted us the most during the day.
For us, Tyson is the only brand of nuggets and frozen ready to eat meals that we choose. I love the brand and everything that they stand for, like donating meals to kids in need so that they can help end hunger.
What about you? What are you doing to help end childhood hunger?
