Last year students from Phoenix area high schools collected 124,000 pounds of nonperishable food items for the Food Bank during the national Student Food Drive (SFD).
This year’s SFD promises to be even more successful as the winning school will be awarded the Food Bank’s Van Hengel Cup at a Phoenix RoadRunner’s hockey game and a chance to receive prizes from US Airways when the drive ends in October. Named in honor of Food Bank founder John van Hengel, the Van Hengel Cup will reside with the winning school until next year’s SFD.
Last night was the kick-off event for the SFD. Rocky the RoadRunner joined us, along with last year’s winning school, Mountain Ridge High. Check out the news coverage on 3TV.
