'5 for 5 Food Drive' Collects Over 500 Items for Food PantryRecently, the LaFayette Central School District’s “5 for 5 Food Drive” put the finishing touches on a successful holiday collection!
As the drive’s moniker indicates, the 5 for 5 drive challenged students from the LaFayette High School and Big Picture School to contribute either $5, or 5 non-perishable food items for collection (in exchange for in-class extra credit points), all of which benefit the LaFayette Outreach Food Pantry.
Normally run by Maura Daly-Picciotti, this year’s event was helmed by pinch-hitter Tim Baker. Mr. Baker himself leaned heavily on the exceptional work of two seniors, Lauren P. and Lily B., who led the charge in collecting over 500 food and toiletry items during the event!
Special thanks also go out to Halee A., who aided in the delivery of these supplies to the food pantry. The volunteers at LaFayette Outreach were “absolutely thrilled” with both the district’s efforts and results!
