The race is on, and WCS high schools have until the end of the month to collect food for the Drive Away Hunger Challenge.
From September 11 until September 30, Williamson County high schools will be collecting food to benefit GraceWorks, One Generation Away and The Well Outreach.
The schools compete to see who can collect the most food. Each school will be judged on how many pounds it collects, and at the end of the three-week challenge period, the totals will be tallied.
Two grand prizes are available: a $1,250 prize for the school that collects the most pounds of food and a $1,250 prize for the school that collects the highest average weight of goods donated per student.
Items of need include family-sized boxes of cereal, instant oatmeal variety packs, canned goods, pasta and peanut butter.
