We are a local branch of the national Student Hunger Drive that works to feed the hungry throughout the Quad City area. Local High Schools in the Quad Cities and surrounding communities hold a 6-week challenge every fall to raise money and collect food to help the hungry. With the support of area business partners High Schools raise awareness about hunger, as well as promote volunteerism. All food and funds collected by High School students goes directly to the River Bend Foodbank.
