Feeding the Future
International Project 2020-2021
Feeding the Future, the International Project for the 2020-2021 school year, is focused on providing sustenance for Yemen citizens facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Interact 5170 has partnered with World Food Programme USA to achieve this, and our goal for the school year is to raise $50,000. This means that we’ll be able to feed (provide food boxes) 650 families of 5 for a month. Every dollar you donate can feed 2 citizens for a day. Combating with Care, the Community Project for the 2020-2021 school year, is focused on alleviating the disproportionate effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on marginalized communities in the Bay Area. Interact 5170 has partnered with United Way Bay Area to achieve a service goal of 30,000 hours and a monetary goal of $25,000. Together, we will tackle the project in two phases: 1) recovery, alleviating emergency needs such as hunger and shelter, and 2) rebuilding, offering financial assistance to help people find jobs and economic security.
