The food drive is part of SIFE's participation in the Campbell Soup Company’s Let’s Can Hunger Challenge, a comprehensive initiative that not only includes collecting food for people in need but also focuses on raising awareness, translating awareness to action in the form of urgent hunger relief, and empowering those in need to defeat the cycle of hunger.
The team’s goal is to raise more than 5,000 pounds of food this school year.
