Canned Food Drive

'Tis the season for giving! MHS is having it's annual canned food drive starting today December 2-12. Boxes will be placed in the main office as well as many classrooms that are participating in collecting canned food items for Hope House. 

The holiday season is full of opportunities to give to those who can’t afford to put nourishing meals on their family’s table.

And we desperately need to take advantage of these opportunities.

Though hunger may sound like a problem of the past – since obesity is often the more visible and talked-about issue – this is far from the truth. More than 49 million Americans live in food-insecure households, and 16 million of these people are children.

What hungry families need is not the Kraft Mac & Cheese that’s been sitting at the back of our pantry for two years, or the ketchup we never got around to using. Rather, they need healthy, high-quality foods that promote good eating habits any improved overall health.
