Food Drive Aims for Another Record

The local food drive, hosted by ASB, is running from November through December. The food will be given to underprivileged families in nearby communities as well as to aid relief efforts for victims of Sandy. The Food Drive has been held since 1997, when a total of 414 pounds of packaged food was donated. The number of participants in the drive has drastically increased since then, with 30,000 pounds collected in 2010, the highest recorded yearly total so far.

“The drive will start on November 12 and continue throughout the holiday season, but November 21 will be lost this year as a day off,” Assistant Principal Cristy Dawson said.

The food collected will be donated to the centers of 2nd Harvest and the Local Community Supported Agriculture program of the Bay Area.
