Are the students in your school ready to change hunger? Join us for the Students Change Hunger food drive challenge!

Students Change Hunger is a statewide food drive challenge available to all students in New Jersey Pre-K through College to collect the most food and funds for their regional Food Bank in creative ways. The challenge runs from September 19, 2016 through December 12, 2016.

Food collections dropped off before November 1, 2016 scores your school a 10% Bonus of poundage in the competition!

Awards will be given to participating schools by each Food Bank, and all schools are encouraged to apply for the Governor's Cup, the most coveted award given to the school showing the most spirit and advocacy in their project. In 2014, John Witherspoon Middle School clenched the Governor's Cup, and in 2015, The Cambridge School of Pennington was declared the winner, both in Mercer County! Who knows, your school could be next!

Visit for more details and to register your school. It really looks great for National Honors Society, community service hours for school and for your leadership on your resume!
