If I were a teacher...Inspiring Students to Make a Difference. $25,000 Community Grants.

I'm a Mommy to a caring, sharing almost 4 year-old. The Lemon Lady "Mommy-Daughter" campaign against hunger helps solve a serious hunger and nutrition problem by engaging volunteers near and far - and personally harvesting or delivering over 100+ tons of healthy fruits and vegetables to the poor and hungry. Volunteers are always welcome and always needed. Contact your local food pantry or county food bank. Find out about hunger in your community. Believe me...hunger IS a problem in every community! Let's do something about it.

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.
