PRINCETON: Witherspoon Middle School's Do Something Club does something really big . . . and wins Governor's Cup

Every day, there are children who go to school hungry. When their parents have to choose between paying the rent, paying the utility bills or putting food on the table, it’s food that often takes the hit.

So when the John Witherspoon Middle School’s Do Something Club decided it needed to do something, it took on the challenge of collecting food during the annual statewide Students Change Hunger Food and Funds Drive.

The students easily met their goal of collecting 3,000 pounds of food in six weeks, so they upped the ante. They collected nearly 8,800 pounds of food by the end of the Students Change Hunger Food Drive — and for that effort, the school was presented the 2014 Students Change Hunger Governor’s Cup Award.
