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.

The three high schools that bring in the most pounds of food or dollars (based on student population) could win up to $2,500 ($1,500 for second place and $1,000 for third place) thanks to the Rick Young Insurance Mountain of Food Award!  

Congrats to the 2022-2023 winners!
