Lester B Pearson is being called on to respond to the need of our local food bank dealing with a food shortage experienced by families in our community. We will collect donated non-perishable food items from today, June 13 to Monday, June 20.

Students should bring their donations in to their homeroom and a tally will be kept for grade level competitions. A winner will be announced for the most items donated at the 7/8 level, the 9/10 level as well as grade 11 and 12.

We have contacted the Gloucester food cupboard to determine the most needed items. These include the following: pasta, pasta sauce, canned fruit, cereal, juice boxes, school lunch snacks, fruit cups, pudding cups.
