The hunger bowl challenge nonperishable food drive and food sculpture contest is a competition between other local high schools in the community. The competition is to fund raise food and bring awareness about hunger in Jackson. The competition will be held on Thursday, Mar. 17, from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

The donated nonperishable foods will be used to build the food sculptures for the competition. Northwest will be creating a Rubik’s cube for their sculpture. Their slogan is “the Mountie Nation is helping to solve the puzzle of hunger in our community”.

Northwest as well as the other high schools have donated nonperishable foods such as cereals, macaroni and cheese, hamburger helper, noodles and pasta sauces, canned vegetables, soups, fruits, tuna, and chicken.

Polly’s Country Market has agreed to sell nonperishable food items at cost to the schools participating in the event.

Volunteers are needed to be able to complete the sculpture, see Menegay if interested.

Voting for the best food sculpture will begin March 19 and 20 where students can vote at Art 634 at 634 N. Mechanic Street. Voting is based off donations, one dollar is equivalent to one vote, 20 dollars is equivalent to 20 votes.

Judging will be done on Saturday, Mar. 19, from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.
