Thanks to all who donated to the Upper Elementary food drive for River Food Pantry!

This afternoon, following our whole-school Thanksgiving sing-along gathering and lunch, twenty students from ages five to fourteen (along with three teachers and one visiting IMA alumna) walked from IMA to the food pantry with a wagon and a quadruple stroller full of food — 107 pounds of food total!

It was a beautiful walk, 2.4 miles in all, and we enjoyed talking with friends, picking up dried honey locust seed pods, and observing nature along the way. The River Food Pantry staff was very welcoming, and showed us the inside of the pantry; we plan to do more service work with this worthy organization in our neighborhood in the months to come.

Happy Thanksgiving!
