JACKSON CENTER — Members of the Jackson Center/Upper Valley Career Center FCCLA, along with 11 volunteers from the student body, participated in a project called “Bowls of Love.”
This project consisted of monthly meals that were presold and then prepared and delivered by student volunteers. All supplies and materials for the meals were donated, so each meal resulted in 100 percent profit. Meals were sold as a half membership (four meals), or a full membership (eight meals) at a cost of $7 each. A total of 72 meals were sold.
In addition, several people made cash donations to the project. This project was chaired by Kate Sosby, Riley Jackson, and Raquel Kessler.
The project raised $570 for donation to the local Fish Pond Food Pantry. The pantry serves Jackson Center, Maplewood, Montra and Botkins communities. Approximately 60 families are served by the pantry each month.
