CMS base camps will collecting food for FISH from November 5th through November 16th.
The FISH organization hands out 400 boxes of food to families in Albany each month. This helps to serve 28,000 people in Albany, with the average family getting 75 pounds of food. The CMS food drive will help provide them with food for these boxes.
The base camp in each grade that collects the most food will win a root beer float party. The base camp that collects the most food in the school will win pizza to eat with their root beer floats.
Food will be counted the way it is sold in grocery stores. For example, if you bring in a Costco size package of Ramen it will count as 96 items since Ramen can be sold as a single package in grocery stores. All food items should be boxed, bagged or canned. No glass items please.
