The KidsFed Club at Indian Hill High School, run through Childhood Food Solutions, packs bags of food once a month at Wyler headquarters. Wanting to do more, KidsFed partnered with DECA and Student Government to get all students at Indian Hill HS involved with helping needy families in the community have a happy Thanksgiving.

 

Students packed 4,000 food bags in less than 30 minutes, and had all the bags loaded in vans – plus the entire school cleaned up – an hour later. Bags will be delivered to the following elementary schools and given to students who are on the free and reduced lunch program to help​ carry them through the Thanksgiving holiday: Roll Hill, Taylor, Oyler, Roberts, Rees E Price, Carson, St. Lawrence, Holy Family, and Resurrection. 

 

IHHS KidsFed was started by Junior Graham Wyler, who spearheaded the packing event with Juniors Emily Singer and Lexi Magenheim. All staff and students were involved in some way, and the PTO was invaluable in helping make it happen. “This was truly a complete school effort,” says Jeff Damadeo, IHHS Principal. “The event is an affirmation of how special our students are, not just in terms of their accomplishments in academics, athletics, and the arts, but also in their desire to contribute to the community, their initiative, and their ability to rally everyone together for good cause.”
