Gonzaga Collects Nearly Four Tons of Food During Annual Drive for the McKenna Center

Every year, Gonzaga’s National Honor Society organizes a week-long Canned Food Drive to benefit the McKenna Center. This year's drive was part of the Great Ignatian Challenge, a friendly competition against other Jesuit schools intended to raise students’ awareness of hunger and inspire them to take action. Eighteen Jesuit high schools on the East coast took part in this year's challenge.

At Gonzaga, the drive ran from Monday, November 1 to Friday, November 16, and brought in an impressive 7,857.7 pounds of food for the McKenna Center! The final results of the challenge will be announced in early December. 

We hope you enjoy these great photos from the drive. And thank you to everyone who donated, organized, and helped make this year’s drive a big success!
