Daniel Webster Food Drive Group Members: Abby, Mary, Sarah, Andy, Meliah, Stephanie, Katelyn 1. A detailed description of the issue your group has chosen to address. This description should include what the issue is, whom it effects, and why it is problematic, and what do you view as a possible solution. a. It is estimated that 200,000 Indy residents live in food deserts. A food desert is an area that has low food access and does not have typical access to a grocery store. Among these areas is Daniel Webster School #46. Daniel Webster is a small Indianapolis Public School located on the West Side of Indianapolis. This school is the center of a community that struggles with poverty as well as hunger. 319 of the 432 students benefit from the free lunch program. Daniel Webster provides not only the students with food and clothing but also the community. b. Daniel Webster’s pantry supports not only the school community but the community surrounding the school as well. i. Community findings: Closest grocery stores 1. Kroger: 3.5 miles, 1h 9 min walk, and 8 min drive 2. Aldi: 3.9 miles, 12 min drive and 1 hr. 19 min walk 3. Bucks Supermarket: 3.5 miles, 1h 7 min walk, and 8 min drive 4. Billies Food Pantry: .4 miles from school and 9 minute walk 5. Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center: .6 miles and 12 min. walk 2. A detailed description of how you plan to advocate. How will you do it? Where will you do it? Why are you doing it? Who is your target audience? a. Talked to Sydney, a faculty member at Daniel Webster who is in charge of running the Pantry. Found out what the pantry is, what they needed, when they are open, and how we could help. b. We decided to each go out and do a group wide food drive to replenish the pantries food/clothing/hygiene supply. These items will be turned in by Monday 4/29. c. We also created a couple of donation events to support Daniel Webster’s pantry. One event was a Donation Day on April 27th at Plato’s Closet. This event gives customers 10% off their purchase if they donate food/clothing to the drive. d. We also are doing a drive at the Delta Zeta Gala on 4/28. e. We are doing this all over Indiana, from each of our hometowns to our workplaces. We are wanting to make an impact on the community to

helping those in need. This will create a peace of mind not only in the communities minds but also the Pantry leaders. 3. A detailed description of your desired impact/outcome from your advocacy. a. Our hope was to gather as much resources as we could to help our community here at Daniel Webster. We want to give as much food/clothes/hygiene products as well as spread awareness of this pantry and pantries like it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
