Sloane Public School students, staff, parents and community engaged in a social justice project on poverty called the What If... ? Poverty Project. Students learned that poverty is not something that occurs only in poorer countries; it happens in our own backyard. With support from three Rotary Clubs - North Scarborough, North York and Toronto Eglinton - one of the project initiatives took place in May 2017 when the school held a food packing session.
Students and volunteers made pre-packaged meals (long grain rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, etc.) to send to Dekpor, Ghana, Africa, Pic Mobert First Nation Reservation in northern Ontario and to the Toronto food banks. All in all, there were 21,384 meals made and distributed. Each meal was enough to feed a family of six.
