  • 1. “End Hunger” Josie Ference Loup City FCCLA Central Region Loup City Public Schools Loup City, Nebraska “No Kid Hungry” – National Outreach Project
  • 2. FCCLA Planning Process Summary Page IDENTIFY CONCERNS At the August chapter meeting, our adviser informed us of the different community service projects. Project discussion included the following: “Share Our Strength”, “March of Dimes”, and our local food pantry. After attending the Fall Leadership Workshop and learning about the “Feed Nebraska” project ideas, our chapter decided to help end child hunger. A representative from the Central Nebraska Community Services, Inc., shared that 175 people in Sherman County are going hungry and 83 of them are children. According to the No Kid Hungry website, 92,360 children, statewide, are at risk of hunger. Nebraska ranks 37th out of 50 states for childhood hunger. Nationally, more than 16 million children struggle with hunger. SET A GOAL The Loup City FCCLA Chapter created a theme known as “Join to End Hunger One Cupcake at a Time” to help address our concern. Our first goal was to raise awareness of child hunger in America. Our second goal was to collect 500 canned items to bring up the food pantry quota to 100% by October 25, 2012. Finally, our third goal was to accumulate $500.00 through various fundraising by April 15, 2013. FORM A PLAN (WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, HOW, COST, RESOURCES, AND EVALUATION) Who: Josie Ference, FCCLA members, K-12th grade students and their parents, administrators, teachers, CNCS, and community members What: To create awareness for child hunger at the local, state, and national level by sponsoring a food pantry collection and four events to raise money for the “No Kid Hungry” project When: September 15, 2012 – June 1, 2013 Where: FCS classroom, Loup City Public Schools, and Central Nebraska Community Services How: Meetings to plan various fundraisers and activities, work days to collect, count, and deliver for the fundraisers and activities, time to promote the various events Cost: Spent 75 hours on this project Cost for prizes: $64.09 and Cost for materials: $10.83 Resources (Human): FCCLA adviser/FCS teacher, CNCS Family Outreach manager, FCCLA members, K-12th grade students, parents, teachers, administration, community members, basketball spectators, and support staff Resources (Non-Human): 2011 National FCCLA website, 2006 Community Service CD Rom, No Kid Hungry website, CNCS, Sherman County Times, Trotter’s Whoa and Go, Loup City Diner, Joe’s Market, King’s Home Furnishings, Variety and Gifts, Sam’s Club Evaluation: Counting the number of items after food pantry collection. Money collected from various fundraising events. Prizes were awarded to winners for three fundraisers ACT Researched data on child hunger at the local, state, and national level. Met with my adviser to set up a plan of activities to complete throughout the year. Had a meeting with the Family Outreach Manager at CNCS to assist with projects. Projects included collecting food and personal items for food pantry and filling Christmas baskets of donated food for eligible families in our community. Promoted awareness of the child hunger issue by inviting students to wear orange to raise national awareness on September 19. Planned a food pantry drive between students in K-12th grades. Planned and sponsored four events to raise money for proceeds to go to the “Share Our Strength -No Kid Hungry” project and local food pantry. Presented my project to the school board in January. Participated in the Winter Wellness Expo in March, and in Evening With the Arts, in May. FOLLOW UP The most important thing I learned was how important it was to lend a helping hand in our community. The difference in the community as a result of the FCCLA Community Service Project is that the food pantry is now stocked and will be available for families in need. After collecting the items for the food pantry, we collected 811 items, and supplied enough items for 114 families for two months. We collected $377.49; 75% of the proceeds will go to the “Share Our Strength – No Kid Hungry” project, and the remaining 25% goes to the local food pantry. I would like to give a special thank you to the members of the school and community for supporting my project and fundraisers. I will continue this project next year. My goal is to do a better job of educating my peers and involving the community in our fundraisers and pledge.
