Sussex Tech wins creativity award in Food Bank drive

December 12, 2013

Sussex Technical High School was judged Most Creative in Delaware for its school bus entry in the 2013 DelawareCAN Contest. Statewide, 46,340 pounds of food were collected for the Food Bank of Delaware during this event, and the food bank is already hard at work in the community feeding those who need it the most.

Collection of nonperishable food items will continue for Sussex Tech’s own food pantry that is being started at Sussex Tech for Ravens in need.

Sussex Tech adopted this campaign as its annual community service project to help solicit food for the Food Bank of Delaware. Students in Leslie Williams' and Kevin Elzie’s Leadership Development class built the bus structure used to put the food products in. It is decorated with boxes of macaroni and cheese, and holds all the food donated by the Sussex Tech community.
