Student members of Bishop Stang High School’s National Honor Society recently held their annual Rock-a-thon to help local food pantries ease local families’ food insecurity. Students alternately rocked in rocking chairs and weighed and received food donations throughout Friday September 20 and Saturday, September 21st. By the end of the drive, they had collected a total of 6,183 pounds of food for local food pantries. The food was distributed this week to local pantries, including the Shepherds Food Pantry in Acushnet, Solano Casey in New Bedford through Catholic Social Services, St. Anthony's Church in New Bedford and St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Wareham.
The attached photos show student volunteers loading food onto the food pantry trucks.
