This year, there is a new challenge for local high school students.

"They are encouraging high school students to get involved with food drives," said Vicki Pillow with the Food Bank. "Five high schools nationwide will receive at $10,000 grant if they are one of the high schools who collect the most cans during this Feinstein grant."

Pillow also said the 5 students that collect the most have the opportunity to  receive a $10,000 award.
