Students fight against hunger

On Feb. 6, the Trumbull Academically Gifted (TAG) program hosted a “Celebration of Service Learning” for its grade 4 students. At the event, the 24 TAG students presented their service learning projects, which focused on making a difference in the fight against hunger in Connecticut, and in particular, the town of Trumbull. In all, the TAG students raised $3,845.67 for the Connecticut Food Bank, and also donated 569 pounds of food. Representatives from the Connecticut Food Bank, Ms. Mary Ingarra and Ms. Kim Damien, attended the event and were presented checks for the donations.
