Kalispell High Schools Food Fight For Hunger

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Kalispell is taking a cross-town rivalry to the bank.

The Kalispell branch of US Bank is sponsoring a competition between Flathead and Glacier High Schools to see who can donate the most food to the Flathead Food Bank.

The winner will be the school with the weightiest contribution. Every dollar donated is worth one pound of food.

Community members can get in on the drive as well by delivering donations to either high school or the US Bank on North Main Street.

"I would like to see several hundred pounds from each school...since this is the first year we're doing this we really don't have a goal," said Joel Kempff, the branch manager of US Bank.

The winning high school will be announced at their football game on November 1.

Two-hundred dollars will go to the winning school's sports booster club.
