Event is Full – Grow, Eat & Give: Kids Helping the Hungry Event
February 8, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Give your kids a unique food experience that will help the hungry!
At this event, kids will learn how food goes from a farm to your table and ways they can support local food pantries through gardening. Kids will get to explore how food is grown and how good “real food” tastes by preparing healthy snacks. Each child will take home a potted vegetable to care for and grow at home. The produce from that vegetable plant can be donated to a local food pantry like Loaves & Fishes or the West Suburban Community Pantry.
This event focuses on self-awareness, curiosity and helping people meet their basic need of food for strong, healthy bodies and brains.
Join us at this unique and fun event hosted by Ask Aunt V. Space is limited, so register today!

About the club
Inside Out Club DuPage (formerly I Support Community) started in September 2012 after seeing the overwhelming need for children to possess a strong foundation in character and community. Our mission is to develop kids with character inside and out.
Inside Out Club opportunities
The Inside Out Club (IOC) is designed to engage kids and families in as many of these four opportunities as possible as they practice character skills and volunteer. Working with teachers, volunteers, parents, school administrators and outside organizations, the Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 1,400 students and their families. IOC focuses on DuPage County and its needs.
What does Inside Out mean? We work to help students develop the character skills necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community. Lessons are based on the foundations of social and emotional learning, which helps people recognize and manage emotions, develop empathy for others, maintain cooperative relationships and make responsible decisions.
