The drive runs from Oct. 16 to Nov. 17. The overall goal of the challenge is to raise awareness of hunger in the communities while filling 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 they are expected to surpass that total this year.
