The Castlegar Community Harvest Food Bank, represented by Deb McIntosh (second from right), received 3,201 items of food from Stanley Humphries Secondary School’s “Halloween for Hunger”  food drive. Bud Gregory (first from right) and his leadership class (pictured) help organize the event. Damien Fitchett (middle) collected the most food items with 519 alone.

“This money will go towards feeding a number of families in the Castlegar and District area,” said McIntosh to the students. “There are kids here who don’t normally get nutritious meals for breakfast or lunch.”
