Capital District High School Hunger Games
For the second year in a row, WGNA wants to see which high school can gather the most non-perishable food in WGNA's High School Hunger Games!
We're partnering with Fidelis Care and Honest Weight Food Co-Op to bring this awesome program back for a second year. Last year, with help from our listeners and hundreds of families throughout the Capital Region, we were able to gather more than 20,000 lbs. of non-perishable food items to be donated to the needy in New York.
Notre-Dame Bishop Gibbons was our winning high school in 2014. The school that gathered the most food by weight was announced the winner and received a party at Flight Trampoline Park and showing of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 1."
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!
HOW IT WORKS
A group of local high schools will compete to see which school can gather the most non-perishable food for donation. Each of the schools will have until Nov. 2 to collect the food, and with the help of New Country Toyota, we will come to each school and pick up and weigh the school's donation.
The school that donates the most food will win a party at Flight Trampoline Park in Albany, where students will get to watch the most recent "Hunger Games" movie.
HOW DO I GET MY SCHOOL INVOLVED?
Simply sign your school up to participate using the form below. WGNA will be choosing and contacting the official 10 schools that will be participating in mid-September.
HOW CAN I HELP IF I DON'T HAVE KIDS IN SCHOOL?
If you'd like to help one of the participating schools win once they have been selected, get in touch with the school of your choice and find out how you can make a donation to stop hunger! We will be posting all of the participating schools on this page once they have officially been selected, so stay tuned!
