Students from Mountlake Terrace High School completed their annual food drive Monday by delivering 11,800 pounds of nonperishable food, baby diapers and paper products to the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank.

After collecting 25,000 food and items at Mountlake Terrace High School, students packed the donated goods into more than 250 boxes and loaded them into the food bank truck. Once the items arrived at the food bank students unloaded the donations onto nine pallets for storage until after the holidays. In January the items will be sorted and distributed to food bank clients.

Food bank officials were grateful for the successful efforts of the MTHS students. “Thank you to all the students of Mountlake Terrace High School whose hard work contributed to the success of this food drive,” said Bob Jenista, Vice President of the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank Board of Directors.

Students unload the 250 boxes on to nine pallets and weighed -- a whopping 11,800 pounds.
