Poudre High School Student Council
Poudre High School Student Council initiated a "Feed Our Families" Food Drive in 2008 and has since served over 1,500 families by providing canned and fresh food to families for two weeks. The program has been so successful that in addition to meeting the needs of Poudre High School families, it has expanded to include families from its feeder schools in Fort Collins, Wellington, Bellvue, LaPorte and Livermore. The program now includes "Pay it Forward" boxes so families can share canned food with other families. In the spirit of "Ubuntu" the Poudre High School Student Council has got teachers and staff actively engaged in the process and partnered local stores to encourage customers to donate food for needy families.
