ELKHART — At a time when food pantries nationwide are struggling to keep up with demand, one local school is finding a way to give back – one dime at a time.

Concord High School students are holding their annual March Food Drive to raise money for a local food pantry and raise awareness about food insecurity in Elkhart County.
