KHS Students spent last week carrying boxes and cans of food through our doors. Not for their lunch, but for the lunch of someone they may not know. Every year, the Kenton High School Student Council puts on a food drive for two local food pantries in an effort to provide Thanksgiving meals for those less fortunate. While the final numbers are still being reviewed, KHS students alone filled 6 shopping carts and had lined the rest of the hall with bags of canned goods. Debbie Hamilton, who manages the Bread of Life Food Pantry at Kenton FULL Gospel Church said that last year’s donation was able to feed people until March. The members of Student Council would like to thank the student body for donating again this year.
