If I were a teacher, I'd begin this project in the schools. Teach children to share and care. Who better than energetic middle-schoolers to help spread the word? FRUIT GROWS ON TREES and FRUIT CAN FEED THE HUNGRY. It can't walk itself into a food pantry. Community minded individuals are needed to help bring fruit to food banks! It really is a simple message and an easy way to make a difference in your community. Any Town, USA.
Be inspired. Harvest fruit for the hungry. Make a difference today.

The Christopher Columbus Awards is a national, community-based science and technology program for middle school students. The program challenges the students to work in teams of three to four, with an adult coach, to identify a problem in their community and apply the scientific method to create an innovative solution to that problem.
Eight finalist teams and their coaches will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World® to attend National Championship Week and compete for valuable U.S. Savings Bonds and the $25,000 Columbus Foundation Community Grant, plus a $200 development grant to further refine their idea.
