Paramount Food Drive

Student Council will be sponsoring a Canned Food Drive FEBRUARY 19TH-22nd in coordination with the Meridian Food Bank. Paramount is collecting food to benefit those within our community who might need a helping hand. As we are entering our 5th week of the government shutdown, the Meridian Food Bank, is now preparing to give relief to federal workers affected, as well those they typically serve. On average, the Meridian Food bank sees about 1000 people a week, now with the shutdown they are seeing many more. Please bring in NON-PERISHABLE food and canned items. Please do not send in expired dates as the food bank will not accept those items. Student Council will be lining the halls of Paramount as the food comes in. They are asking that if you purchase items in a case (e.i. Ramen Noodle, Mac and Cheese, or bottled water) please keep them in their cases. This year there will be no class/grade rewards, as we are hoping to make this more about the community. Together we can make a BIG difference in our community.
