Did you know that 1 in 5 children in Wake County live in a food insecure household? Penny Road is again partnering with Urban Ministries of Wake County for this year’s “Students Against Hunger” food drive. Urban Ministries of Wake County provides struggling families with healthy, nutritious food.
The Food Drive will take place each morning from Tuesday, November 19 through Friday, November 22. You may deliver your donated food goods to the front lobby between 8:45 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.
The food items most needed are canned meats, cereal (low sugar), oatmeal, grits, granola bars, pasta sauce (low sodium), and canned beans.
The top class in each grade that donates the most food items will win “THE GOLDEN CAN” trophy and a classroom reward. The top class in each grade will also have its picture taken for the PRE website and Yearbook!
Any donation that you can provide in making this Food Drive a success is appreciated!
