Brie Hathcock brings the "Bountiful Bowl" to HMS

Brie Hathcock, one of our 7th grade students, had an inspired idea that she wanted to put into action.

Brie met with Assistant Principal, Joan Adler, and Yarmouth's School Nutrition Director, Blair Currier, to ask if there was a way to donate the fruit and unopened drinks, yogurt and cheese that students don't eat during lunch to those who could use it. Thanks to Brie's advocacy, and the help of Kathy Lathem, the head of the HMS Nutrition Team, Brie's idea came to fruition.

Students can leave these items in the HMS "Bountiful Bowl" located in the cafe. Our Nutrition team donates this food to the local food pantry. Our congratulations and gratitude to Brie for pursuing this idea to help our community!
