Students meet food drive goal

DCHS Journalism

November 27, 2019

Oberlin students collected 1,515 items for the Oberlin food pantry.

The Student Council set a goal of 1,000 items.


“I am so proud of our students, especially the seniors who really stepped up,” said principal Brenda Breth.  “They never cease to amaze me.”

Student Council president Anna Carter found out what the food pantry needed, and based on those needs, Stuco came up with a class competition and a point system.

Certain items were worth five points, such as regular-size cereal boxes, jams, jellies, and peanut butter.


The pantry is in need of baking supplies, so items like flour, sugar, salt, cake/brownie mixes, and oatmeal were worth three points.


Hygiene products are also needed, so those were worth two points, such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, razors, kleenex, and shaving cream.


Also needed are canned fruits and vegetables and canned soups, as well as Hamburger/Chicken/Tuna Helper, spaghetti sauce, and pasta. Those items were also worth two points.

Because of the differences in class sizes, Stuco took the class’s points and divided by the number of students in that class to come up with an average points per student. 


The seniors won the competition.  They donated a total of 613 items or an average of 32.2 items per seniors.

The freshmen were second with 411 items or 19.6 per student, and the juniors were third with 216 items or an average of 9 items per junior.


The sophomores donated 102 items, the 8th graders donated 94 items, and the 7th graders 79 items.
