Local high school students are helping out the community with a little fall flair.
Students at Metea Valley High School assisted the Northern Illinois Food Bank by re-labeling and packing over 20 tons of canned pumpkin pie mix.
The unexpected overload of orange came from an anonymous donor. In order to get the product out in time for the holidays, the food bank asked the school to help re-package the goods.
Students gave up their lunch periods in order to help.
“I came down during my psychology class and enjoyed helping so much that I stayed for two more class periods. It feels good to give back,” said Zoe Eitea, a Metea Valley senior.
The canned pumpkin pie mix will be distributed by the food bank to numerous local community pantries and organizations.
