For the third year in a row, WGNA wants to see which high school can gather the most non-perishable food in WGNA's Capital District High School Hunger Games!

We're partnering with Morris Ford to bring this awesome program back for a third year. In the past two years, with help from our listeners and hundreds of families throughout the Capital Region, we were able to gather more than 35,000 lbs. of non-perishable food items to be donated to the needy in New York.

Notre-Dame Bishop Gibbons was our two-time winning high school in 2014 and 2015. The school that gathered the most food by weight was announced the winner and received a party at Flight Trampoline Park.

This year, all donated food will go to The Food Pantries for The Capital District for distribution throughout local food pantries in need. For details on how to get involved, keep reading!

Food stacked high in WGNA's garage after WGNA's High School Hunger Games last year.

HOW IT WORKS
A group of local high schools have been selected to compete to see which school can gather the most non-perishable food for donation. Each of the schools will have until Oct. 30 to collect the food, and with the help of Morris Ford, we will come to each school and pick up and weigh the school's donation.

The winning school will receive a party at Flight Trampoline Park of Albany and a special, private performance by Chase Bryant!
