World Food Day, October 16

This month was dubbed “World Hunger Prevention” Month at HBMH, in honor of World Food Day, October 16. All throughout the month, our students have been learning about ways we can prevent world hunger. Among many things, we hosted a canned food drive to collect donations for those in need; our charity chest is overflowing with food! Charity is a key component to the foundation of our school, and something that we celebrate every day. Our children learn a strong sense of community at a very early age, practicing grace and courtesy through each act of charitable kindness. Similar to Dr. Montessori’s beliefs, in order to create a better future and end world hunger, we must start with the children.

Pictured below: our young toddler friends dropping off their donations at the charity chest. Thank you, friends!
