Siler City, NC - Siler City Elementary School students collected 730 cans and boxes of food to show appreciation for the West Chatham Food Pantry. The food collected weighed a total of 722 pounds.

The West Chatham Food Pantry supports the school by helping individual families and providing “FUEL Up” bags for many families. FUEL Up, an acronym for Food Until Everything Looks Up, is a program that sends home food to needy Chatham County Schools families during the weekend and holiday breaks.

Eleven fifth grade students from Karen Hummel’s class worked diligently to sort the collected food into different categories: condiments, rice, meat, cereal, pasta, soups, and drinks.

“Great work 5th graders and all students who contributed to this successful food drive,” said Sally Scholle, social worker at Siler City Elementary.
