Oct 19, 2022

Student members of Bishop Stang High School’s National Honor Society recently held their annual Rock-a-Thon to help community food pantries ease local families’ food insecurity, school officials announced.

Students alternately rocked in rocking chairs and weighed and received food donations throughout Oct 14 and 15.

By the end of the drive, they had collected a total of 10,130 pounds of food, which was distributed this week to local pantries, including the Shepherd’s Food Pantry in Acushnet, Solano Casey in New Bedford through Catholic Social Services, St. Anthony's Church in New Bedford and St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry in Wareham.
