12/13/2013 9:54:00 AM NHS Food Drive at CFHS Dec. 16-20
The CFHS National Honor Society will host its 7th annual drive to benefit the Cannon Falls food shelf December 16-20.
Grades K-5 will be collecting food items and brown paper bags.
Grades 6-12 will be collecting cash.
The food shelf sees ten new families coming to the food shelf each month. About 150 families are served monthly, which is about 500 individuals.
Why donate money vs. food items? Our food shelf purchases food from a food bank, where money goes a long way. For example, a large bag of cereal costs thirty cents vs. a box of cereal from the grocery store that costs $3. They can also purchase a ½ gallon of milk for 35 cents, where at the store it will cost $2.
