UPDATE Sept 11, 2018: The final food collection tally for Sept 11, 2018 was a whopping 5,656 cans and boxes.

Original story, Sept 10, 2018: Greenwich High School students and staff will participate in the school’s 9th annual September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance with a massive food drive in the student center.

The drive is being organized by the Roots & Shoots Club, The HEROES Club and Neighbor to Neighbor.

Students are being asked to bring canned foods and non-perishables to the student center.

The most needed items are peanut butter, rice, pasta, canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, cereal and soup.

The idea of the food drive is to mark the anniversary of the national tragedy with a day of service. In this case the idea is to aid those less fortunate in the Greenwich community.
