CCD STUDENTS PAY US A VISIT
Meet St Pius X 4th graders who, along their CCD advisor, Jacqie Supsie, visited the food bank one sunny Saturday afternoon in January.
 
Food bank volunteeer Andrea Flaherty led the students through the real work that it takes to weed out outdated food, then sort, shelve and pack the food before it can be given to those less fortunate. Greeting the students was food bank storesmaster Dick, who had just picked  up food which was donated by shoppers at ShopRite so the class was right on time to help out. 
 
Also attending was the food bank Mascot, Snoopy Burnett, who was there to distribute his autographed picture to all.
