This Halloween, students from Sparwood Secondary School will be out and about in the community trick or treating. They will not be filling their bags with candy this time, they will be trick or treating for canned or dry foods which will be donated to the Sparwood Food Bank.
“This is the second time students have been in the community for the program ‘Scare Away Hunger.’ Last year several students took it on themselves, and this year the school’s Student Council has taken it on,” says Tanya Wagner, SSS Student Council Teacher Representative. “Each group of kids will go to a certain area in the community and all food items collected will stay local,” she says.
Residents of Sparwood are asked to keep their eyes out for costumed teens and help support the local food bank.
