Minnesota FCCLA has been granted distinction as a Lead State Agency for Global Youth Service day with 3 events in 2018-2019 to engage youth volunteers to take action with service efforts.
Develop a Service Project for January: A service effort for Martin Luther King Jr Day
FCCLA Food Shelf Community Service Project
Beginning at Fall Summit in November, up until your Regional Contest in January, your chapters and regions will collect as many boxes of cereal, mac and cheese, and peanut butter jars as you can to donate to your local food shelf.
1 Cereal Box = 3 points
1 Peanut Butter = 2 points
1 Box of mac and cheese = 1 Point
After you collect, you can report to your area president how many of each item you have donated, and how many points you have gotten. The chapter with the most food collected will receive a prize.
The area with the most food donated will get preferential seating at one of the general sessions TBD at the state conference.
