Concerns about the community/needs of the community

After going through all the criteria, Lack of food is the most important and we could use a food donation drive

3.Identify Community Partners

How can/ will they help
SST Corporate Communications can give approval for this service learning project to be carried out
Food from the heart can aid in distributing food collected from food donation drives to provide food for the low-income families
4.Establish baselines
Track the degree of impact of the service at the end of the project
Currently, a number of families in the area has difficulty providing food for themselves
After implementing the service project, we expect that lesser or no families will have difficulty on getting food.
