Noble Central School's second annual Fill-a-Tractor food bank filled not one, but two tractor cabs with food bank donations.

Students, staff, parents and community members managed to roughly double the donations from last year, when the event filled one tractor cab. The donations go to the food bank operated by the North County Interfaith Outreach Society, located in Picture Butte.

While students in the kindergarten through Grade 12 school were all encouraged to contribute food to the campaign, the community was also heavily involved as leadership students went door-to-door with bags inviting the public to join the effort.

Students participating in the 30-Hour Famine, an event that sees students fast to build deeper understanding of hunger, spent some of those hours going back to homes in the village to collect donations.

“I couldn’t have been happier,” said Noble Central Principal Greg Rollingson. “This is the kind of community we have out here. They’re willing to pitch in.”
