South Bend elementary student collect for food drive - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

South Bend elementary student collect nearly 4,000lbs in food drive


Kennedy Primary Academy Students spent the day stuffing a bus full of food donations on Friday.  The annual "Stuff a Bus" food drive at the school has been going strong for four years now.

Organizers set the event for spring so the Food Bank of Northern Indiana can get a large donation during a time when donations are a little less common.

The school sets up the food drive as a competition, with the grade that donates the most winning a popcorn part on a Friday afternoon.  Parent Shelly Zabukovic says the kids really get into the spirit of the drive.  Some of them, she says, even gave up their recess time to help load the donations.

All totaled, the school collected 3,949 pounds of food for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.
