Sixth-graders won the competition by donating 1,126 pounds.


Top donors were Daniel Knight with 158 pounds of food, Molly Early Crecelius, 137 pounds; Maddie Matthews, 121 pounds; Meghan Matthews, 114 pounds; Nicholye Nicoson, 99 pounds; Zakery Riedel, 96 pounds; Jake Smith, 75 pounds; Kaylee Gumm, 62 pounds; Becky Schroepfer, 61 pounds; Josh Cibene, 60 pounds; Shyanne Terry, 57 pounds; August O’Shea, 55 pounds; Alexandra Stuwart-Lovell, 50 pounds; Michael Larsen, 46 pounds; and Katie Stevenson, 45 pounds.
