This amazing annual food drive kicked off on Thursday, Sept. 28th at Northlea’s Back to School Barbecue and is now in full swing! Running for one week, Northlea will be participating as one of 19 schools in the School Challenge, as part of Team East. From Friday, Sept 29th, to Thursday, Oct. 5th, students will be encouraged to bring in a different type of food item each day. These are merely suggestions — all types of canned and non-perishable foods will be accepted throughout the food drive period (glass containers, though, are discouraged!), along with cash donations through the following button to Northlea’s donation page, where $1=1 pound of food:
