The school-wide collection tasked students with collecting as many non-perishable foods as possible. The competition was fierce, with a first prize pizza party at stake.

Several determined classes battled for the top spot, but Carmina Villegas’ fourth period social studies class was victorious and won the coveted pizza party.

Second place went to Eric Harris’ fifth period English class, who received a tray of cookies for their effort. Science Teacher Patricia Gaer, a top contender from last year’s drive, finished close behind with her first period class in third place.

The Interact Club members delivered the food donations to the Goshen Intermediate School Food Pantry for distribution by the Youth Ending Hunger Club.
