**UPDATE: First Colonial High School has been awarded $5,000 in technology products, after it was randomly selected from all the registered teachers who completed and entered their Lead2Feed World Hunger Challenge.
First Colonial High School (FCHS) social studies teacher Debbie Lou Hague and Gifted Resource Specialist Missy Sullivan worked with Hague’s 2013-2014 AP Human Geography classes on the Lead2Feed Student Leadership Program to help end hunger.
Leed2Feed has students work together to learn more about hunger issues in today’s society as well as empower them to help get involved in the fight to end hunger. The program also hosts an annual contest, where students can enter to win money for organizations also working to provide food to those in need.
It’s the second year Hague’s students took part in this program. Students were again broken into six groups. Together, each group picked a non-profit, planned a way to help them with hunger and submitted their projects to USA Today and the Lift a Life Foundation.
Incredibly, for the second year, all six groups received an award of $1,000 to give to their non-profit organization here in Hampton Roads.
The organizations that received money are: $2,000 went to UNICEF $1,000 went to Pin Ministry $1,000 went to the Judeo Christian Outreach Center $1,000 went to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia $1,000 went to Eastern Shore Chapel Pantry.
