Battle Against Hunger started in 2015 as a friendly off-field competition between rivals Dearborn and Fordson high schools. Edsel Ford High School joined the food drive later, and then it was opened for all the district’s other schools that were interested in participating. Initially, the event was a competition between the schools to see who could collect the most non-perishable food. Now, the event is a cooperative effort to help families in need.
Food donations gathered at the schools through Battle Against Hunger are given to Zaman International to distribute to the community. Monetary donations will go to the Amity Foundation.
Our Nowlin Service Squad is hoping to fill up the boxes in our lobby to help! Please send in your cans and non-perishable items until Friday! Those interested in making a monetary donation, can donate online here . Thank you!
