Purpose The purpose of this proposal is to start a canned food drive and help in the fight against hunger during the holidays.
The non-profit organization that I chose for the semester project is Feeding America, a non-profit organization that consists of a network of food banks assisting food insecure people throughout the nation. What does a food insecure family look like in the United States? It is parents going without food in order to feed their children, it is families rationing food and skipping meals.
Do you want the animals you eat feed antibiotics and the food is not fresh or do you want food that is fresh and the animals are feed right?Ranchers and farmers have been feeding antibiotics to the animals we eat. Ever since they discovered decades ago and has been found as a health risk to humans but there is a food chain that can help America. The local sustainable food chain is the best food source to feed America.
I recently did a Food for America project, which is a project on basically anything having to do with agriculture, presented to children in my town and too many others. For my project I chose to do Shribers Foods. If you don’t know, Shribers is a company that makes dairy products all over America. Shribers was even kind enough to donate some cheese to my group as samples for the children to whom I presented. That is an excellent example of how adults can help out. I’d like to connect FFA and Young Farmers Farm Wives of America, because if everyone grouped together we could make Food for America bigger and better each year, by having more things to see, especially things the FFA students don’t have or couldn’t acquire, but that could be brought in from the young farmers to do a presentation over, then more education is spread to the younger generation.

The key to learning is having enough sleep and feeding the brain correctly, there's some food for thought. The current meals provided at Corvallis High School in our cafeteria are generally premade meals that are frozen and then reheated, the meals are crass and foul tasting. The majority of students at our school usually drive to Hamilton to eat so they can avoid the meals that are provided in the cafeteria. “Research shows students learn better when they’re well nourished. Healthy eating has been linked to higher grades, better memory, more alertness, faster information processing and improved health leading to better school attendance, according to registered dietitian Elisa Zied, author of “Feed Your Family Right.”’ The meals provided
Nancy Gibbs the author of the essay “The Magic of the Family Meal” focuses on the subject of family dinners. She talks about the history of family dinners, the benefits that come from eating dinner as a family, the new way that families do family dinners and why families stopped having dinner together. In the eighth paragraph Gibbs talks about why families don’t do family dinners as much as they use to the main factor being time she continues to repeat this key idea throughout the paragraph. One way that she does this besides repeating this key idea in the paragraph is repetition of the word “time”. Which she expresses through her use of transitions. One example is how Gibbs uses repetition of the word time to emphasis that time is the cause

The Clay County Fair is the most important week of the entire year for me. I was born on the Friday before the ‘99 fair. I have celebrated my birthday each year here. This yearly event has helped shaped my passions and how I approach life.
This paper will explore several ways in which frequent family dinners are beneficial to social development. My argument will consist of three main points backed by several research papers. First, according to a study, family dinners encourage healthy eating which discourages weight problems like obesity (Neumark-Sztainer, Hannan, Story, Croll, Perry, 2003). As indicated by the International Life Sciences institute in a review of existing research, overweight and obese children are more likely to be involved in bullying, (both as victim and as perpetrator) (Kukaswadia et al., 2011). It therefore stands to reason that family meals can indirectly discourage this particular form of social difficulty. My second point is as follows. A study by Fulkerson et al. (2005) found an inverse relationship between frequent family meals and high-risk behaviors, many of which are considered socially inappropriate, such as violence and antisocial tendencies. It is likely that this negative correlation is in part due to the structure and stability offered by routine family dinners. Children and adolescents in an open and honest family mealtime environment are also more likely to express their emotions (Fulkerson et al. 2010). This gives parents the opportunity to address problems that might lead to high-risk behaviors. Finally, exposure to language is invaluable to the social development of children. Thanks to the prevalence of language at the dinner table, mealtime is a good opportunity for
There are usually three types of food categorizes when donating to a food rescue organization; unprocessed, processed or cooked, and non-perishable food. These can be placed into sub-categories for collection and distribution, such as “(i) fruits and vegetables (fruits, vegetables, packaged salads, etc.), (ii) bread (bread,
