Some of our favorite difference-makers are young people, whose passion inspires whole communities. Take the students of West Boylston High School, for example. In 2018, West Boylston High School students collected an incredible 2,422 pounds of food through a food drive that’s become an annual tradition.

The Student Council led drive takes place on Halloween night each year during normal trick-or-treating hours; students go door to door explaining the purpose of the drive and collecting non-perishable food items.

And they’re not alone. Across Worcester County, students from elementary school to college, are finding ways to make an impact in the movement to create a hunger-free community. Stay tuned to next month’s e-newsletter, Nourishment, for another fabulous example! (If you’re not yet subscribed, you can sign up from the footer on our homepage.)
