What is this about?
Pleasant Valley Hosa is partnering with the West End Food Pantry for the Have a Heart, Fill the Cart Food Drive. The goal is to foster friendly competition between school districts to provide healthy foods to local families in need.
What do you mean by ‘healthy’ foods?
We will happily accept any donations, but we’d like to focus on providing heart-healthy options such as whole wheat pasta or rice, canned fish, peanut butter, canned vegetables, granola, etc.
How does the competition work?
Schools compete to see who can collect the most food for donation during the month of February. To make things fair between two differently sized districts, student population is taken into account and scores are weighted accordingly. Winners receive a trophy and bragging rights!

- Pleasant Valley High School – 1671 US-209 Brodheadsville, PA 18322
