Student Food Drive

What is the Student Food Drive?

The Student Food Drive is an effort conducted by elementary, middle, and high schools in the Channel One service area to collect and donate food to the member food shelves of Channel One Regional Food Bank.  Schools in Faribault, Waseca, Rice, Goodhue, Wabasha, Steele, Dodge, Olmsted, Freeborn, Mower, Fillmore, Winona, Houston, and La Crosse County in Wisconsin are eligible to participate!

When is the Student Food Drive?

Channel One Regional Food Bank’s 10th Annual Student Food Drive will be held March 1 – March 29, 2019.

How do students participate?

Students participate through their school. With the help of a faculty or staff advisor, students plan events to promote their drive, organize their food collection, and package and deliver food to their area food shelf. Students are recognized for their efforts at an awards party once the Student Food Drive is over, where prizes are awarded for different levels of achievement and for their overall enthusiasm during the Drive.

Where does the collected food go?

Channel One Regional Food Bank serves hunger relief agencies in 14 counties in Southeastern Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Food collected from the Student Food Drive will be distributed to people in need by the local food shelf in the communities where it is collected.
