WATERLOO – The Northeast Iowa Food Bank kicked off its annual Student Food Drive Monday.
Students from eight local schools will host events and fundraisers in an effort to collect food and funds for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. The Student Food Drive serves as a friendly competition which will benefit those who are hungry in Northeast Iowa as well as the students and schools involved.
On the final day of the drive, students will deliver the food to the food bank to be weighed individually by school. On the afternoon of Nov. 8, the winning schools will be recognized for their efforts, and the total number of meals collected will be announced.
