This fall, High School students have been focusing on the United Nations Global Goals, a to-do list for the world. In 2017, world leaders agreed on 17 goals (also known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs) to help heal the climate, ensure food security, combat human rights abuses and much more. These Global Goals aim to be the solution for tackling our biggest problems.
In order to see first-hand how we can help locally with food security and compassion, High School students visited TOPSS, a food pantry and social services center in Oxford. The students learned about the work that happens to meet their mission “to alleviate hunger and support nutrition-related well-being of those in need in the Talawanda School District.” Our own Angela Trubceac, who is a part time staff member at TOPSS, was able to give guidance and involve our students in the work.
