The drive will run from Oct. 16 to Nov. 17. The overall goal of the Challenge is to raise awareness of hunger in our communities while filling our local food banks and pantries with tens of thousands of pounds of provisions for needy families. Last year’s participating schools collectively raised more than 101,000 cans of food and are expected to surpass that total in the spirit of the Challenge.
Members of the Fairfield Prep community collecting cans for their last Tahnskgiving food drive.
An anonymous donor who was inspired by the existing Thanksgiving food drives at each school has pledged up to $250,000 for tuition assistance at the six participating schools. The donation will be divided among the schools based on the amount of food collected per student.
