After investigating the global impact of food scarcity, a discussion was had within the classroom as to how and why some of our local community members face the same challenges. The students decided that they could help assist these families by building “blessing boxes” to place around town. The boxes would contain donated non-perishable food items, hygiene items, and basic living supplies and would be stocked by local donors, churches, and community members. This project is an ongoing interdisciplinary project that truly involves the entire community and is designed and completed by the students through the design-thinking process.
