Thanks to all the schools who participated in the 2008 Rick Bayless: One Plate at a Time Food Drive sponsored by KLRN!

Congratulations to the following schools who brought in the most food per student by weight. Each school's library will receive a $250 Shop PBS Gift Certificate provided by Broadway Bank! Every school is from the Northeast Independent School District! Congratulations NEISD!

Castle Hills Elementary
In one night, Castle Hills Elementary filled three San Antonio Food Bank barrels of food while hosting a Family Health Night for parents, teachers and students. Each participant brought food items in exchange for a dinner. The night was designed to educate families on food and fitness in a healthy and fun way. Congratulations!

Omar Bradley Middle School
Students had an opportunity to be forgiven of their library fines, if they chose to participate in the food drive. Students at Bradley brought in 279 pounds of food. Great job, Bradley!

"It is nice to see middle school students caring about their community," said Veronica Valor, library assistant.

MacArthur High School
Students at MacArthur were also given the opportunity to have library fines forgiven if they chose to participate in the One Plate at a Time Food Drive.These students participated in the “Can Your Fine” incentive program to bring in food items. The National Honor Society for MacArthur was very active in participating and promoting the food drive and helped bring in 403 pounds of food! Congratulations!
