Punahou collected more than 8,000 pounds of food as part of its annual food drive to support Hawaii Foodbank. The nearly month-long drive culminated on Tuesday with students, faculty and staff assisting Hawaii Foodbank representatives in filling the delivery truck with boxes of donations.
Students at all grade levels collected canned and non-perishable foods for other children and their families from Oct. 21 through Nov. 15. Students also got involved in contests and games, including creating sculptures with cans. Grades 2 – 5 students in After-School Care created fun food-themed games, using cans as currency, as part of a project initiated by the Case Accelerator for Student Entrepreneurship (CASE) and Luke Center for Public Service.
