Today’s the big day for local schools taking part in the NBC 6 “Pack the Pantry” competition.
Nine schools who raised the most food were honored.
They were awarded with cash prizes.
The highest being $1,000. Students collected donations for the food bank of Northwest Louisiana to help the organization through the difficult winter months.
The competition went on for about a month.
The food bank is also receiving more food from schools who did not want to participate in the competition.
It should put the food bank at more than 65,000 pounds raised.
If you would like to help, you can drop off food here.
