Young & Free South Carolina, powered by South Carolina Federal Credit Union, partnered with the Lowcountry Food Bank Student Food Drive, helping students from seven high schools collect 23,732 pounds of food.
The winning schools, Ashley Ridge High School, collecting seven pounds of food per student, and Academic Magnet High School, collecting six pounds of food per student, each received a $1,000 cash prize from Young & Free SC.
This was the fourth annual Student Food Drive, a six-week hunger relief campaign designed to empower high school students. The students took initiative in planning, organizing and promoting the food drive at their schools and packaging and delivering the food to the Lowcountry Food Bank for distribution.
