Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School students on Friday loaded thousands of pounds of canned goods into two Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma semitrailers. Last year, students at Bishop McGuinness set record-breaking numbers for the sixth year in a row by collecting more than 80,000 pounds of food for hungry Oklahomans. Their goal this year is to collect more than 85,000 pounds of food for hungry families, seniors and children.
Students Against Hunger engages students in raising awareness about hunger while collecting enough food and funds to provide 600,000 meals to feed the hungry. More than 150 schools in central and western Oklahoma are participating in the drive.
The drive is presented by the Oklahoma County Bar Association — Young Lawyers Division, Devon Energy Corporation and Chesapeake Energy Corporation.
