Centerville is a proud partner of Food for Neighbors (FFN), a community organization which provides more than 1,700 students weekly food support at 29 area middle and high schools.  Through their Red Bag Program, they provide a platform for middle and high schools to engage volunteers from their local communities to work together to collect and distribute food.  

On April 30, CVHS had their first Food For Neighbors collection event, in which 4 drivers collected from 49 houses a total of 658 pounds of food in the Centreville area.  Across the areas FFN covers, on that same day FFN collected 18,000 pounds of food!  If you would like to become a Red Bag Donor to support the Food Pantry at CVHS and neighboring schools, the next Collection date is September 30 and you can sign up hereHunger is closer than you think!
