Snake River JR High Wins 2018 Food Feud

The 2018 third annual Food Feud is in the books. The two week canned food drive to help stock the pantry shelves was a huge success. This year’s contest brought in over 4,100 pounds of food and nearly $500 in cash donations. A big thanks to both Snake River Jr. High School and Mountain View Middle School for all their efforts.

SRJH narrowly defeated the MVMS 7.19 points per student vs. 5.57 points per student. This was the second year the two schools have matched up in the feud.  The students, faculty, and staff have embraced the idea of helping the CDT Food Pantry.

Both school principals Bryce Salmon, SRJH and Wes Jensen, MVMS, were extremely proud of the efforts of the students and how they rallied to help the community in which they live. Having the young people of Bingham County learn generosity and service above self will take them far.

Service above self also happens to be one of the Blackfoot Rotary Clubs slogans. This is the third year in a row they have donated $1,000 to the winning school. Troy Eppich, club president is happy  to be a supporter of such a great group as Community Dinner Table. He is amazed how it has brought so many different groups together for a common purpose.
