Did you know that 1 out of every 6 Chicagoans is food insecure, not knowing when or where their next meal will be? In an effort to help those in need, Skinner North will again be participating Chicago Bull’s annual Holiday Food Drive which benefits the Greater Chicago Food Depository. For last year’s food drive, our Skinner Community was able to donate 44 boxes of food. This year, we’re hoping to match or even exceed that amount!
All families are invited to participate and we are encouraging each student to bring in 5 food items - of course more is welcome!
Shelf stable, non-perishable food items most needed by the Food Depository include:
• Canned Vegetables & Fruit
• Canned Stews, Soups & Chili
• Canned Beans
• Canned Tuna
• Peanut Butter
• Pasta Sauce
Food collection boxes for each classroom will be located in the front of the school and the top three classrooms will be eligible to win one of three prizes:
• Extra recess
• Rock climbing wall time with Mr. Popowich
• New classroom games for indoor recess (e.g. Jenga, Uno, board games, etc.)
