The November character education assembly at Andrews Academy in Creve Coeur focused on the theme of hunger relief on both a local and global scale.
Circle of Concern’s Senior Director of Resource Development Juliet Holden gave a presentation to students about the work that Circle, a food pantry in Valley Park for low-income families and individuals, does for the community. Students then prepared themed boxes of food for Circle and created special cards or poems to enclose in the packages.
Board of Directors Vice President Luz Rooney of United Nations Association of Saint Louis also spoke at the assembly about ways to further pursue global relief initiatives. As part of that mission, sixth-grade students participated in the St. Louis World Food Day at John Burroughs High packaging rice protein meals to help feed the hungry locally and abroad.
