The High School Community Service Club held its annual Fall Break Food Drive Thursday, September 23 through Friday, October 1 and collected 87 bags of food during the drive. 

Middle and High School advisories were challenged to put together at least one bag of food containing each of the following items:
  • one package breakfast/nutrition bars
  • one box of cereal
  • four bowls/packages of Kraft Easy Mac Original Macaroni and Cheese
  • one four-pack of fruit cups (pop-top or peel back, please)
  • one box of fruit snacks
  • peanut butter or cheese crackers
  • two cans of Ravioli/Spaghetti O’s (pop-top, please) or two cans of kid-friendly soup (pop-top, please)
  • one jar of peanut butter
  • one jar of grape jelly
  • two bags/cans of tuna
  • one reusable tote bag (a bigger bag such as those from Kroger, Whole Foods, or Trader Joe’s)
The USN community did not disappoint. With help from generous students, families, and faculty across campus, the club was able to fill 87 large, reusable tote bags to distribute to students who live in the Edgehill community ahead of their school break because many rely on school-provided breakfast and lunch each day.
    • Community Service Club members Ximena Martinez '23, Sophie Kavali '23, and Riya Narayan '23 gather assembled bags from the annual Fall Break Food Drive.

    • Director of Service Learning Mike Jones's office overflowed with food donations before items were delivered to the Community Service Club's local partners.
