Students at Langley Middle School culminated a month-long food drive, “Scare Hunger Food Drive,” with an assembly on Friday, Nov. 15.

A total of 1,010 pounds of food was collected by students and donated to Good Cheer Food Bank.

Each class was challenged to build a sculpture with the food collected during the assembly.

The 8th grade class won for the most food collected, 7th grade won most for creativity by making a “Santa Chair” and the 6th grade won for the best teamwork.

Good Cheer Food Bank served 960 families in October and is expecting to serve more during the month of November.
