MVMS wins Food Feud

image003The first annual “Food Feud” was won by Blackfoot’s Mountain View Middle School (MVMS) in a competition with Blackfoot High School.  The winner  was announced at the Tommy Vaughn’s Marathon and More on Saturday, May 21st at Jensen’s Grove . The objective of the competition was to help fight hunger in Blackfoot and Bingham county, especially when the supplies begin to diminish in the spring.  Principal Wes Jensen, said the students and faculty really embraced the challenge and we’re excited to compete. They had internal  competitions among the various classrooms and grades. The combined effort of both schools brought in roughly 2,500 cans of food as well as $300 in donations. But in the end the middle school came out victorious.  Because of their efforts they won the $1,000 prize donated by the Blackfoot Rotary club.

“For the first feud, we were happy with the results and feel like this can grow into an annual tradition, that just gets bigger and bigger”, said Christian Utley , CDT board member.  Speaking about Food Feud, Principal Jensen enthusiastically said “their school will take on any challengers next year, so bring it on!”

The CDT board would like to thank both schools for their generosity, and a special thanks to Blackfoot Rotary club for their generous donation to the winning team.
