A houses competition with take place in conjunction with the food drive; the school houses are challenging their respective members to donate their non-perishable food items in the name of their house. The winning house will receive a pizza party.
Mu will turn in its food in Room 206, Alpha in Room 402, Gamma in Room 101, Iota in Room 301, and Sigma in Room 202.
Non-perishable foods include all canned goods and dry goods such as cereal, pasta, beans, rice, and dry packaged mixes. Students should refrain from bringing fresh produce or anything that requires refrigeration.
Ultimately, the Grant A.M.E congregation, located at 10435 S Central Avenue, Los Angeles, will distribute the donated foodstuffs.
“We(campus ministry team) reached out to Grant A.M.E and the JEDIS made a video and signs to spread the news,” said Molly Fruland, Jesuit volunteer.
