Students at National Blue Ribbon Elementary School Learn About—and Act On—Food Insecurity

Students at Bugbee Elementary School, a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School in West Hartford, CT, recently hosted their first-ever “Fill A Bus” campaign, collecting nearly 4,000 food items for the local West Hartford Food Pantry. Bugbee students organized the drive, setting up food stands, sorting food items, and filling a school bus. Their work will serve as model for other local schools.
