SPS raises hunger awareness in Food Fight 2018

October 26, 2017 in Food drive Get Involved

Springfield Public Schools will participate in Food Fight 2018, Ozarks Food Harvest’s 7th annual district-wide food drive competition, Jan. 15 – 31.

Food Fight 2018 is a food and fund drive competition among Springfield Public Schools with Partners in Education. The mission of the Food Fight competition is to raise hunger awareness across the district and stock community and school pantry shelves following the holiday season.

Participating schools have the opportunity to partner with an area business or organization. All of the food and funds collected at the business will go toward the partnering school’s final donation total.

Trophies will be presented to the winning middle and high schools collecting the most cash and pounds of food per student. The winning schools will also win volunteer opportunities with Ozarks Food Harvest. Elementary schools will compete among their schools’ classrooms. Five elementary classrooms that collect the most within each feeder pattern will receive field trips to The Food Bank.

All donations collected during Food Fight will directly impact local agencies.
