Parkland schools collect food for Second Harvest to help combat hunger in the community

Thursday, June 8, 2017 by JENNIFER BODISCH in School

Team work was the word for the day as representatives from all Parkland schools converged at the high school recently to help wrap pallets filled with various foodstuffs.

These pallets were then loaded onto trucks and taken to Second Harvest Food Bank, Nazareth. This 12th annual event was a district-wide effort in combatting hunger in the community.

In the month prior to the massive food delivery, students and staff from each of the eight elementary, two middle schools and the high school were encouraged to donate non-perishable canned or boxed food items.
