Community Food Bank gets holiday help from students

CLOVIS, Calif. (KFSN) -- Boxes filled to the brim and beyond were loaded into trucks by Clovis East High School students all in an effort to end hunger in the Central Valley.

Clovis East teacher, Jaime Arredondo said, "We're going to keep giving til we cant give no more."

The annual food drive is a growing tradition for the Timberwolves.

Donations are a combined effort between the junior high and high school and each year they try to outdo themselves.

Arredondo said, "When I started this 13 years ago the grand total was 700 cans, 13 years later were at 43,000."

Students spent the last two and a half weeks raising these donations and they gladly broke up their last day of finals with a little heavy lifting.

Community Food Bank provides food for more than 200 agencies in Fresno, Madera, Kern and Tulare Counties. Serving more than 280,000 people each month.
