This national event is always around the Super Bowl so people feel the enthusiasm and want to participate.
The campus-wide-food drive is encouraging students to compete for a good cause. The students have been competing to see which classroom collects more cans of food and money. The winner is honored with a tailgate party in the spring and a trophy.
All the food that is collected in the process goes to the Argyle Food Bank. The students have until February 6th to continue with the competition. Every Friday the students gather to count the donations to see if they can break last year’s record. Last year they collected $1,600 and over 2,000 lbs of food.
Anyone who has donations can drop them at Argyle middle school or, also, they will be collecting money and donations at each of the basketball games. The specific canned foods they need are canned soups, macaroni and cheese, stew, chicken, tuna, and pasta.
