Seventy-six St. Agatha middle school students gave back to local and state community members in need by volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank this fall. Students, staff and parents sorted more than 5,000 pounds of pinto beans, adding ingredient labels and instructions on how to cook and serve.

The volunteer effort provided more than 4,000 meals for the hungry, with an average of 44 meals prepared by each student.

Students reported feeling good knowing they were able to provide so much assistance and good will.

“This was a great way to kick off our service learning for the year, and support our Friends of St. Agatha annual giving theme of ‘the common good’” says Chris Harris, new principal at St. Agatha.
