OKLAHOMA CITY – After collecting donations for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Students Against Hunger Food and Fund drive, the school has exceeded their goal of raising 80,000 pounds of food.

In total, students at Bishop McGuinness collected 112,500 pounds of food for hungry Oklahomas’ this winter.

Statewide, nearly 200 schools participated in the Students Against Hunger Drive.

“The food collected from the schools will help fill the shelves of local pantries, in some cases, school pantries that provide chronically hungry middle school and high school students with food to sustain them after school and over the weekends,” said Rodney.
