On Thursday, November 5 students from Matthew Halton High School group 'Students Inspiring Change' visited the Junction Food Bank in Pincher Creek with an estimated 200 pounds of food. This is the second year the group has ran their 'We Scare Hunger' Halloween campaign. McMan Supervisor Anne Gover was very pleased with the donation. "What a wonderful gift from the students of Matthew Halton. This is a great start to our Christmas Campaign." The food will be used in ongoing support this season and in Christmas hampers.
We Scare Hunger is part of an international campaign by Free The Children which encouraged students hold a food drive and/or trick-or-treat food instead of candy.
