Each December, our extended community at Richmond Secondary School gets involved in a food drive to support the Richmond Food Bank and the 2,200 people they help support every week of the year. All donations will be collected in 1-2 classes on December 12, 14, 18 and 20. If students and families are able, please donate nutritious, non-perishable food, toiletries or cash. Please note the following theme-days:
December 12 - carbohydrates - especially pasta, cereal, rice and pasta sauces.
December 14 - protein - especially meat soups, tuna and other canned meats and peanut butter also on this day - fruits and vegetables.
December 18 - toiletries - especially paper towels, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste and feminine hygiene products.
December 20 - cash - this is needed to buy fresh foods and milk. The Richmond Food Bank is often able to buy food at lowered costs.
