South Carroll High School is holding its annual food drive to benefit Carroll County Food Sunday through Nov. 18.
Students, staff, faculty and the community can donate nonperishable food to help needy families throughout the county.
A grocery cart has been set up in the media center to receive donations. As an incentive to collect a large amount of food, media center staff are offering a prize to encourage homeroom teachers to collect food from their students.
On Nov. 19, media center staff will determine which homeroom collected the most food and reward those students with doughnuts and juice the morning of Nov. 20.
