Chick-Fil-A Leadership Food Drive

What Rock Creek High School is doing to combat hunger in America.
Victoria Haverkamp

Rock Creek High School Chick-Fil- A club came together to fight hunger in a big way. Chick-Fil-A club is kicking off their first food drive this week, aiming to collect as many foods for the community as they can to ensure no family in the area goes without a meal this season. Jeri Brummett [Chick-Fil-A club sponsor] was interviewed to give some information about the food drive. 

Students donating any kind of food is helpful to meet this goal but must be mindful about the weather and efficiency. “Dried fruit beans, snack foods, pancake mixes, instant rice soup, canned vegetables, canned meat. It’s kind of a bad time of year for stuff that freezes. But we’ll try to be mindful about what we put in there. Like, you know Kraft mac and cheese, ramen things that wouldn’t freeze and people could still have access to,” Brummett explained. 

Not only is the Chick-fil-A coming together to fight hunger but the whole school is. Throughout the year students will be able to donate food to the food drive. Each advisor will have drop off boxes where they can put the food in. The Chick-Fil-A club will then come collect the food. After they collect all the food they will donate it to the Harvesters organization.

Chick-Fil-A club’s particular goal for this year’s food drive  is to collect around 1,500 food products. 44 million people in the U.S face hunger, including 1 in 5 children. By donating food they hope this will lower the rate of hunger throughout our community.
