Score goals with a successful canned food boost | Instant News

The Mercer Island High School Football Team scores big with a canned food drive, collecting over 500 items during the months of December and January. Junior Ethan Yang realizes there is a food shortage for many people, especially during the pandemic, and hears that many small kitchens are running out of food supplies. Additionally, some small kitchens have closed or stopped accepting canned food due to the COVID-19 problem. To begin the journey, Yang contacted Food Lifeline and coached Forrest Marowitz, who has always embraced community building. Yang and Marowitz asked each student to bring canned food before the two practice sessions a week and also reached out to people they knew to support the movement. Courtesy photos
