Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - Area students are combating hunger in the Cedar Valley.

The 2009 Student Food Drive Kick Off Party was held at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank.

Schools will compete against one another over the next six weeks. The yearly event was created to empower high school students to feed the hungry and promote volunteerism.

"It's just a way to do a rah rah session to get them to kick off the next six weeks of going out into their communities and raising food for the food bank," said Barbara Prather, Northeast Iowa Food Bank.

A record 67,000 pounds of food was raised last year. The student food drive ends Monday, November 16th
