Students can bring in their food items throughout the week in a bag with their house colour on it. Please do not send a bag that you would want returned. Last year, we raised over 3,000 individual items to be given to the needy.
Items that can be donated:
- Canned Items (Tuna, Salmon, Sardines, Meat, Fruit/Vegetables, Sauce, Beans)
- Dried food (Rice, Beans, Chickpeas, Lentils)
- Breakfast items (Cereal, Coffee, Tea, Cookies, Sweets)
- Baking (Sugar, Cooking Oil)
We ask that all donated items be non-perishable, small, unopened, and not expired. Please avoid items that can be damaged easily such as glass.
The first House Colour Challenge of the year “Tale of the Tape” will take place on Friday, October 7th. Students can bring in their food items starting October 3rd. Please bring items in a box or bag with the student’s house colour labelled on it. Last year, we raised over 3,000 individual items to be given to the needy. Items will be weighed, measured, and totalled, to determine points for each House Colour Team. May the best team win!
We thank you in advance for your generous donations.
