This year, Sandy Valley participated in Akron-Canton Food Bank's Stuff the Bus event. This county-wide event ended in us "Stuffing the Bus" with food and donations.

The elementary donated a generous amount of food to help fill our bus.  The middle and high school held a dodge ball tournament Friday, April 28th, and raised over $500 in donations for the event. $1 = 4 meals, and Sandy Valley contributed to providing over 2,000 meals for families in need.

Hunger has a huge impact on children in schools. In classrooms across the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank’s eight-county service area, nearly 1 in 4 children will face hunger this year.  The Akron-Canton Foodbank works to meet the needs and provide hope to these children and their families struggling with hunger by distributing more than 110,000 pounds of food daily.

Thank you all for participating in this challenge!
