Student Council holds events to benefit Quad City Student Hunger Drive

Quad City Student Hunger Drive

According to the Food Aid Foundation, 1 in 7 people worldwide go hungry. For six weeks each fall, Quad City high schools come together to collect food and monetary donations for local people in need.

Last year, Bettendorf came in first place for Division A, collecting 62,392 pounds of food. This year, the goal is to reach 65,000 pounds of food. Student Council sponsors several events during the Hunger Drive in order to reach our goal.

The annual Silent Auction will take place on Oct. 13 during the football game against Iowa City High. This event is an opportunity to give back to the Hunger Drive while earning baskets that have been donated by local businesses and clubs.

The Silent Auction “student section” baskets have prizes that are geared specifically towards students, such as a Prom themed basket, student athlete basket, and two reserved spots in North Lot. All proceeds from the Silent Auction will go towards the Hunger Drive.
