CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

An Academic Magnet High School student has donated a check for $1,000 to Crisis Ministries.

According to school officials, Hannah Manzi donated the money which was earned from lunches she sold to students as part of her senior thesis project.

A release by the school states that the project posed the question of whether or not students would buy healthy, nutritious meals that would also be profitable for the school cafeteria.

The school sent the following release Monday afternoon:

On Wednesday, December 18, 2013, Hannah Manzi, a senior at AMHS, presented a check for $1,000.00 to Crisis Ministries. The money was earned from lunches Ms. Manzi sold to students as part of her senior thesis project. This project posed the question of whether or not students would buy healthy, nutritious meals that would also be profitable for the school cafeteria. She set up "build your own" food bars once a week for 6 weeks. Different choices were offered each week and varied from salad and burritos to sweet potatoes and pasta. Students had multiple choices for toppings, sauces and dressings.

The majority of the food was purchased through Charleston County School District (CCSD) Food Services. Mr. Walter Campbell, Director of Food Services for CCSD, was invaluable in the support and service he and his office rendered during this project. When he learned that Hannah was going to donate any profits she made from selling the food, he donated the cost of the food, making it possible for Hannah to give a check to Crisis Ministries. The school cafeteria manager and staff also assisted in preparing the food, and the project would not have been successful without their help.

The thesis project was a success and Ms. Manzi hopes that CCSD Food Services will set up a "build your own" bar with a variety of offerings for the students at her school.
