It’s fall and school is back in session, which means it’s time for the annual “Kids CAN Fight Hunger” Food Drive! The food drive will be Monday August 24th through Friday October 23rd, 2015. This year all Fayette County public and private Elementary through High School and technical colleges will be placed into three divisions based on total enrollment. The most needed items are canned vegetables, canned soups, canned fruit, shelf stable milk, protein (peanut butter, all non-green beans, and canned meat), pasta, rice, and cereal. The winner of each division– the school bringing in the most pounds of food– will be awarded a $500 cash prize. If your school is interested in participating, contact Rebecca Price at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All schools can also participate in a food box decorating contest for one grand prize of $250. A photo of the box is due by October 23rd and will be displayed on the God’s Pantry Food Bank Facebook page (Facebook.com/GodsPantryFoodBank) for public voting. The photo with the most likes will win the grand prize of $250 for their school.
