GNHS Students Collect 21,000 Pounds of Food for Local Pantries

Hard work and dedication nets 21,000 pounds of food for local pantries.

Grayslake North High School students have successfully collected 21,000 pounds of food to give back to food pantries around their surrounding communities.

After months of hard work, and getting those in their community to contribute, Grayslake North students and teachers came together to organize, separate, and box all of the different food items that were collected.

Organizing and boxing these 21,000 pounds of food in a matter of one school day was made possible by the students and teachers that assisted.

Grayslake North’s fellow Public Service Practicum class members worked hard to organize these food drive events in hopes that they are able to help lower the statistic which states 50,000 people in Lake County are living in poverty, according to Uhlich Children’s Advantage Network (UCAN).

A huge thank you goes to those who contributed to make these events so amazing.
