The Lead2Feed team and the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank would like to thank everyone that brought in canned food for this year’s canned food drive. The combined homerooms brought in over 1,500 pounds of food for the food bank, which is equivalent to approximately 1,297 meals.

Craig Davis’s class came in first place in the can collection contest with a total of exactly 200 cans brought in and received a catered Chick-fil-a breakfast. Davis’s class was followed by Ken Zoby’s homeroom with a total of 158 cans, Rebecca Walker’s homeroom with 149 cans, Patrick Day’s homeroom with 120 cans, Carla Cole’s homeroom with 117 cans, and finally, Mary Stark’s homeroom with 100 cans.
