Students on the boys basketball team enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer at Foodlink, the Feeding America regional food bank, which rescues and redistributes more than 16 million pounds of food annually to a network of 450 member agencies in a 10-county service area: Allegany,Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming,and Yates Counties.
Nineteen players and three coaches from the JV and Varsity Boys’ teams spent two hours Saturday morning sorting and boxing reclaimed non-perishable food items for distribution to area shelters and agencies.
In a little over two hours, the team sorted through 20 pallets containing 600 cases of unsorted food stuffs, sorting them into a number of different categories. The team then boxed and loaded the filled boxes onto pallets for future shipping. Foodlink anticipated only going through 12 pallets and 360 boxes, but the focused attention by the students pushed another eight pallets and 240 additional cases.
