8th Annual Student Food Drive
Channel One Regional Food Bank is kicking off its 8th Annual Student Food Drive conducted by high schools in the Channel One service area to collect and donate food to Channel One Regional Food Bank and its member agencies. The food drive will run until November 11th, with a wrap up party scheduled for November 15th.
There is a growing need in our community to support families that are struggling with hunger. Currently, 1 in 10 people living in Southeast Minnesota are food insecure. At Channel One Regional Food Bank, we are working to end hunger in Southeast Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Last fiscal year, Channel One distributed nearly 10 million pounds of food to those in need through our partnerships with local hunger relief agencies. This is not enough. There are still 10 million missing meals annually in Southeast Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.
The Student Food Drive is designed to engage students in a meaningful service project that will have a direct effect on the community they live in. Participating in the Student Food Drive builds leadership skills, civic engagement, and an understanding of the need found in their own communities. All food and funds will stay in the students’ community with their local food shelf. We strongly encourage students to build a relationship with their local food shelf to understand local needs and how they can be of the most help.
