Lebanon High School student body is looking to repeat as champion of the The “Food 2 Families 2009 High School Challenge” sponsored by WKRN News2.
Organized at LHS by the Student Government Association, the annual event collects canned food, non-perishable food items (such as peanut butter) as well as cash with all proceeds being donated to the Wilson County Help Center.
There are cash rewards for the school that raises the most food. First place is $1,500, second place is $900 and third place is $500.
The SGA has set a goal of 60,000 cans and food collected by the local feeder schools counts towards that goal.
LHS students are rewarded with several different prizes for collecting canned goods, including a Cracker Barrel breakfast and snacks.
In the feeder schools, the class that brings in the most cans will win a free pizza lunch.
Many LHS students will be out in the community on Halloween night doing “trick or canning.” Instead of asking for candy, they will be asking for canned food items to donate to this worthwhile cause.
Anyone wanting to donate may do so at the LHS main office
