(From left) Garibaldi secondary Grade 12 students Tara McDonald, Samantha Stanley, Danielle McRobbie, Cara Peacock and Madeline Cockrill are still collecting non-perishable food items in the school’s library for the Friends in Need Food Bank. Thirty Garibaldi students went door-to-door, collecting donations for the food bank rather than candy on Monday night.

This is the third year for the Halloween for Hunger food drive, inspired by Free The Children.
