A high school in Sanger, Tex., decided to open a grocery store within the school’s walls to help ensure students and their families have enough food at home. The store doesn’t accept money. Instead, students earn credit to spend at the store through their good deeds. The students established a point system for the “cost” of items in the store, for example a can of green beans costs 1 point. Students earn points by doing chores, making positive office referrals, helping to clean the school and other good deeds around the school grounds. In addition to meeting immediate food needs for the students and families, the school teaches work skills for students who staff the store.
