Holy Family Holy Name School is in the heart of the city of New Bedford. The students who attend the school come from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The school could use $10,000.00 to enhance our Science Lab. We would like to develop a nutritional component to our science curriculum where the students would learn how to grow their own vegetables, understand the nutritional value of a healthy meal and learn how to prepare and cook a healthy meal, using the vegetables that they would grow in the raised planter in the science lab. It is our hope that the children who attend the school develop the tools they need to live a healthy and happy life. We believe the funds would go to good use, as the children need to be able to experience what is needed to be able to grow their own vegetables. Having this addition in our science lab will help the students enhance their knowledge of the importance of a balanced diet. We strongly believe that a hearty diet makes for a healthy student. We don’t want to see our children ever go hungry. We want them to know the importance of good food.
