Global Studies Class Inspires Food Drive

The Kingswood Oxford Power of Women group held its second annual community service project today. This year, Ava Leshem โ€™24 organized a fresh fruit and vegetable drive to benefit families at Community First School in Hartford. Leshem was introduced to this school as a freshman in a Global Studies class. โ€œDuring Covid, I learned about the food insecurity facing many families and the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables they have access to. I wanted to do something to help,โ€ said Leshem.


A total of 16 families will receive a bag of fresh fruit and vegetables.ย  This is the first of three fresh produce drives that the Power of Women club will support. Now in its fourth year, Power of Women is the largest student-run organization on campus. The goal is to provide leadership and empowerment opportunities for KO students.clubs and activities
