OCTOBER 1–The kickoff at Centennial High School was met with fantastic fanfare from students, administration, teachers, cheerleaders and even the drum line today! 99.9 KEZ’s Marty Manning kicked off the ceremony live on air and Rocky from the Phoenix Roadrunners provided entertainment the entire crowd loved. The students were pumped up launching the campaign with an inventive idea of selling “paper cans” that sold for $1. What a great idea! Here’s just a peek at some of the fun we had this morning….I know if there is one crowd motivated to bring in the food, it is Centennial!
Thanks for your support!

Last year students from Phoenix area high schools collected 124,000 pounds of nonperishable food items for the Food Bank during the national Student Food Drive (SFD).
This year’s SFD promises to be even more successful as the winning school will be awarded the Food Bank’s Van Hengel Cup at a Phoenix RoadRunner’s hockey game and a chance to receive prizes from US Airways when the drive ends in October. Named in honor of Food Bank founder John van Hengel, the Van Hengel Cup will reside with the winning school until next year’s SFD.
Last night was the kick-off event for the SFD. Rocky the RoadRunner joined us, along with last year’s winning school, Mountain Ridge High. Check out the news coverage on 3TV.

The National Student Food Drive (SFD) is coming up! This will be the Food Bank’s second year of involvement, and we’re excited to add new schools.
This morning I discovered the SFD Blog. It’s a good read, and it’s great to see how many high school students across the country are participating.
We’ll have more info as the kick-off nears.
