MIDDLEBURY – Students from Orchard View Elementary School paraded their way to the new location of the Middlebury Food Pantry, 13307 County Road 16, to drop off food from their recent food drive Friday morning, Dec. 22.
Students from Middlebury Elementary School also dropped off items at the old pantry location to be hauled to the new one.
In past years, Middlebury Elementary School students formed a parade to the pantry, with the move, they were too far away. Instead, Orchard View, which began collecting food for the pantry last year, walked. In total, 630 students from 31 classes and 91 teachers and staff members paraded to the two locations to drop off nearly 3,600 pounds of food.
