Service-Learning Proposal Description

1.

Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer Due to the pandemic, the Roseville Area School District has shifted its Summer Food Service Program to a non-congregate feeding style. To accomplish this and ensure that no child goes hungry, the meals have been mobilized and each day, a breakfast and lunch are provided free of charge to children 18 and under via bus stops, pick up sites, and home deliveries. With ~48% of the student population of Roseville qualifying for free or reduced meals, we know there is a real risk of food insecurity in our community and this program will help to close that gap.

2.

What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer Quality teaching and learning for all...equity in all we do. -Mission statement of Roseville Area Schools

3.

What skills are required for this project? 

Answer Accuracy for meal accountability documentation Timeliness for getting meals to children in the time frame promised Self-awareness to ensure safe social distancing and mask use during meal distribution Polite language skills (Spanish, Hmong, Karen, Nepalese) a plus

4.

What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer Report on time each day for duty, communicate if unable to make shift before 7am to enable us to find a substitute.

5.

What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer M-F 7:30-10:30 June 10-August 21
