Annual I-CAN food drive at IDEAL School

Posted on: 2012-01-18
For the fourth year in a row the IDEAL and Dream Schools are sponsoring a local food drive for the community of Royal Palm Beach. Each month students, faculty and parents of the schools get together and walk or run from the campus to the local fire station with cans of food for the needy. The fire department has generously been delivering these items to local food banks and soup kitchens throughout Royal Palm Beach since 2008.

“This whole program came about as a result of an incident we had here at the school several years ago,” said Principal Wendy Soderman. “Our water bill suddenly skyrocketed over the holidays one year and we discovered that a local family was stealing water from the school. When the police went to the family’s home they discovered that their living conditions were difficult at best and they were stealing the water because their own water had been turned off.”

“We realized that this family was probably one of many just struggling to survive and we decided rather than press charges we’d work to make a difference. That’s how we came up with the idea for I-CAN. Now it’s a monthly event we do from January through April each year.”

Over 100 people participated in I-CAN last week along with more than 200 cans of food. The next event will be held Friday, February 3 and anyone from the community is welcome to attend.

“My hope is that other schools throughout Palm Beach County will replicate this program and help their local communities as well,” said Soderman. “It’s free to set it up and can make a difference to people who really need it.”

The IDEAL School and Dream Middle School are pioneers in the use of Multiple Intelligence Theory in the classroom. Their expertise in innovative education draws students from preschool through 8th grade throughout Palm Beach County, Florida. To find out more about the school please visit or call (561) 791-2881
