As we’ve noted in previous coverage, the “100th day of school food drive challenge” originated at Arbor Heights Elementary - where teacher Marcia Ingerslev just shared photos and this report on what they collected for the West Seattle Food Bank:

We collected 501 items of food. Rooms 16 (Ingerslev), 12 (Salter), 10 (Fisk), and 24 (Kennewick) participated. Thank you to everyone who participated. We will have to do this again next year. Maybe we can benefit the White Center Food Bank.

Here are just some of the students who took part at AH:

Even if you/your school didn’t participate, you can help local food banks any time – there’s information about how to donate money and/or food on the websites of both – westseattlefoodbank.org and whitecenterfoodbank.org.
