Leon High School students collected more than 13,000 cans of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank, enough to literally "can-in" their principal in his office.
Their donations will help Second Harvest feed more than 200,000 people in the Big Bend. A little bit of competition helped boost the donations, between the entire school and the Latin classes.
The Latin classes won by a few thousand cans.
Brit Garner, a Leon High School senior and president of the Latin club, said, "It's almost like we have a responsibility. Even though we're kids, it's easy to grab one to two cans, even go to Publix and pick up five, and if you can, why not? So, I think it's a responsibility."
Second Harvest says it was the largest food drive so far during this Thanksgiving holiday. However, there's still a need for non-perishable food items to help cover all the families it serves in the 14-county region.
