After trying weeks of collecting food, CFHS wins food drive with 22,520 lbs.

Our View

After six weeks of creative planning, scheming and collecting, the food drive has finally come to a close. The Cedar Valley area all scrambled to bring in the most pounds of canned items in their division, but it was Cedar Falls High School that outdid them all.

The students brought in 22,520 pounds of food out of the grand total of 37,128 pounds. That is roughly 62 percent of the whole total.

Not only did Cedar Falls shine with their exceeding number of cans, but they also won the most creative event for throwing pies at three teachers during lunch hours.

Third hour classes have been participating in a bracket competition and the winners of the brackets are Kobel and Homewood. They will be rewarded with a pizza party.

The sponsors of the food drive rewarded Cedar Falls High School with $1,000 for winning the student food drive and another $100 for having the most creative event. This money will give Cedar Falls High School a slight advantage for next year’s student food drive.

Also, Cedar Falls High School as well as Valley Lutheran High School , winners of the small school division, will be recognized for their efforts on a billboard.

Thank you to all who donated food, money and time to the food drive. We, also, want to give a special thanks to the members of SSR, student forum, sophomore leadership, junior leadership, senior leaderships, harmony and the choir for their involvement in planning and participating in making the food drive possible.

We also want to thank Hansen and North Cedar Elementary for adding to our total. Hansen encouraged students to bring in cans by allowing them to put their names on the cans and adding it to a canned pyramid. North Cedar offered popcorn and pizza parties to the classrooms that collected the most food throughout the food drive. The CFHS student forum will be sponsoring and serving those parties.

And also a special thanks to Homes Junior High for helping collect cans. This was a very successful year and a lot of people will be helped greatly for it.
