HUNGER DRIVE RESULTS: Six weeks ago we set out on a mission to raise 73,000 pounds of food in the Student Hunger Drive. We are pleased to let you know that Pleasant Valley reached its 2021 Hunger Drive goal of 73,000 pounds. However, we did not just meet our goal. We exceeded our goal and almost reached 80,000 pounds. At the Finale Rally we found out that we won FIRST PLACE!!! Raising more food than any other school district participating in the Hunger Drive this year.

We are truly astonished by the volume of donations we received this year. Thank you community for your generosity!

There are a few groups that need special recognition: Thank you to Argo Moving for delivering our pallets of food to the Riverbend Foodbank. Thanks also to Hyvee, Fareway, and numerous other businesses for their support in raising funds and collecting donations.

Here is the recap of how much food we raised:

  • Total amount of food collected: 79,344 pounds (New District Record)
