Venture: Patriot Parcels
George Washington High School has over fifty families at risk of becoming food insecure. The community responded by handing out food at school. This approach failed because students could not take the food back to their places of residency. Patriot Parcels takes food boxes directly where people need them, capitalizing on the confluence of those in need and those willing and able to help. Together we can make George stronger.
