    ‌When Greenfield School students heard there were children in other schools who arrived to the classroom hungry, they decided they had to do something about it. The student government members and Grade 6 Teacher Kimberly Brenton had a Food for Thought meeting and decided they would host an annual cereal box drive. Each year, the school celebrates pajama day and students are asked to donate a box of cereal.  In 2018, Greenfield hosted their first annual drive and collected 176 boxes of cereal. This year, they more than doubled their total by donating 389 boxes to support the breakfast and nutrition programs at the schools receiving full-day Kindergarten funding from the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation.
