Millions of people go hungry every day, even in the most unexpected places. Children are left with empty stomachs, even when they go to school. Pelahatchie’s JROTC has a solution.

Starting November 5 and ending December 21, Pelahatchie’s JROTC is launching the Food Drive. School communities from Pelahatchie, Puckett, and Pisgah are collecting non-perishable food products to give to families who cannot afford to buy them.

Nearly 6 weeks is given to collect the food. Items like canned vegetables, soups, peanut butter, pasta, and cereal are asked for donation. The food is likely to be brought to the JROTC room.

“It makes me feel like a good person, I think it’s a wonderful idea,” says Carmen Hamilton, a JROTC cadet.

“Sure, it’s a good idea, if you like food and you’re broke,” chuckled Landin Pierce, a cadet as well. “Nobody is really bringing anything, though.”

“I haven’t really heard anything about it,” says Aaron Gipson, another cadet.

“If the ‘cool kids’ of the school were controlling it, people would react more. Since no one has really said anything about it, no one is really reacting,” Noah Brock, a freshman, states his views.

The Food Drive is for the holidays, since it is easier to collect and share. It has always been around Christmas and Thanksgiving when giving and sharing are most important.

As of December 13, there are only 8 days left of the food drive. It hasn’t been mentioned in announcements, which is, what people say, the reason no one is really bringing anything. Maybe with a bit of hope and ambition more will be brought in, even if it is at the last minute.
