FTHS Feeding America Club Collects Food for Local Foodbank

Two Freehold Township High School sophomores, Holly Matthews and Lara Bergazyn, recently helped launch a new club at the high school called Feeding America. The club aims to donate food to local food banks and volunteer at local soup kitchens as per the Feeding America Hunger Relief Organization.

During the school's recent Battle of the Classes, Feeding America ran a food drive. They collected 655 lbs of food from attendees, which was donated to Fulfill NJ: FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties. The school's collection will provide approximately 546 meals for those in need.
