School Food Drives

In the 2022-2023 school year, students, teachers, principals, and parents at local K-12 schools provided more than 200,000 meals for our hungry neighbors.

Hosting school food drives creates an easy opportunity for students to improve their community. We understand that schools are busy places, so we've made participating in our food drives easy and convenient for everyone involved.

Mountain of Food 

The three K-12 schools that donate the most meals per student per school year receive recognition and as part of Mountain of Food sponsored by Rick Young Insurance. Rick Young Insurance also provides an award of $2,500 for the first place school, $1,500 for the second place school, and $1,000 for the third place school. There are no caveats on how it must be spent. Schools can fund special needs and extra projects that may not have otherwise been possible.
“I really want to motivate these kids to think about what they can do for charities. Giving back to others feels good – and it helps students feel good about themselves. My goal is to have students that, after they graduate, continue to do good in their communities.” - Rick Young
Congrats to the 2022-2023 winners!
