Kenton High School student council tallies nearly 5,000 non-perishable food items donated in the annual food drive.

The Kenton City School District conducted their annual food drive competition last week. Schools across the district were tasked with donating non-perishable food items for the Neighborhood Opportunity Center and Kenton FULL Gospel Church’s Bread of Life food pantry.

The district was able to split 4,428 canned food items between the two organizations, as well as $200 to help purchase additional resources.

The annual event is coordinated by the Kenton High School Student Council.

“The KHS student council would like to thank all of the teachers, students, and community members who helped make this year’s drive a huge success,” wrote advisory Mrs. Ashley Anderson. “Kenton City Schools students are able to help so many others within the community, and it makes me proud to be a wildcat!”
