This fall at Canon-McMillan High School, students enrolled in Ms. Johovich’s Family & Community Studies class had the unique opportunity to participate in a service learning project which connected the classroom learning environment with a community outreach opportunity.  Sixty-five students worked towards preparing a hot meal for over 150 people at the Washington City Mission in Washington, PA. 

In November, a select group of 16 students served City Mission staff members, residents and local community members this homemade meal.  The menu consisted of a chicken noodle soup casserole, beef stew, spinach and cheese soufflé, tossed salad, fresh fruit salad and homemade muffins.  The trip occurred after reading, discussing and writing about the hunger problem in the United States.  Visiting a local soup kitchen allowed the students to see first-hand that hunger is a national problem also found in our local community.  Family & Community Studies is one of three foods courses offered at Canon-McMillan High School in the Family & Consumer Sciences department.  Students enrolled in this course explore connections between food and government, economics and budgeting in addition to community service.
