Schedule for annual food drive: Get involved

The annual Northeast Iowa food drive began Oct. 3, and will go until Nov. 13. This year the Northeast Iowa Food Bank along with the high school has decided to switch it up. Instead of going to buy cans, the sum is no longer totaled in pounds, but in meals. For example, one can equates to one meal, and $1 equates to four meals. This means this year students are encouraged to not only donate food, but money as well. There are collection boxes in each third hour classroom. Each department will compete for the most meals collected for a grand prize reward. Release students will be placed with different departments third hours. The overall goal for the school is 35,000 meals.
