Lindsay Collegiate & Vocational Institute won the 13th Annual Pasta challenge by contributing 1,806 boxes of pasta.
The challenge pitted three Kawartha Lakes secondary schools against each other to see which could collect the most boxed pasta in two weeks for the Kawartha Lakes Food Source. Results are adjusted by population to allow for a fair comparison between larger and smaller schools. Students at LCVI (1) collected 2.51 boxes per student while FFSS (2) students collected 1.71 boxes per student. IEWSS (3) came in at 0.72 boxes per student. Overall, the three schools amassed an impressive 3,850 boxes of pasta, which will be distributed on a fair share basis to the Food Source’s member agencies, allowing them to spend their limited cash on other items needed by the families they serve.
The winning school receives a trophy to display for a year. Not only did LCVI win the trophy from the Food Source, but they also won the G7 trophy for the most pasta collected in Trillium Lakelands School Board district.
Congratulations to all, and many thanks!
