Student food drive kicks off in Waterloo at Northeast Iowa Food Bank

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

On Monday night, the student food drive kicked off at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank in Waterloo. The food drive is designed to help encourage students to give back to the community through community service and to help raise money and food for the Food Bank.

Over the next six weeks students at each high school will host fundraisers, contests, and events to raise food and money for the Food Bank. All proceeds and food gathered will be donated directly to the Food Bank to benefit the several programs the Food Bank sponsors.

Seven local high schools are participating in the food drive including Waterloo West High School, Waterloo East High School, Union High School, Valley Lutheran High School, Cedar Falls High School, Hudson High School, and Waterloo Christian School. The kick-off event included skits from the students at each high school describing why donating to the Food Bank was an important community responsibility.

The food drive will continue until November 12th, 2012.
