The middle school collaborated with a food bank to fight food insecurity in the area.

A middle school in the Southampton area recently worked with a food bank to feed Bucks County residents in need. Staff writers for the Lower Bucks Times wrote about the recent charitable collaboration.

Klinger Middle School, a part of the Centennial School District, recently worked with the Warminster Food Bank for a “Stuff the Bus” event, where students and teachers collected items for those in need.

“We are extremely grateful to Klinger Middle School, Centennial School District and Giant of Warminster for their tremendous support of this event,” said Mike Cerino, the director of the local food bank.

In partnership with the food bank, the middle school collected a record-breaking 2,465 pounds of groceries. $821 in cash and Giant gift cards were also gathered for local residents in need.

“At our school, we often talk about service to the community,” said Martin Hayes, the principal of Klinger Middle School. “Our students and their families take great pride in giving back to their community. The Stuff the Bus food drive is what service to the community is all about and it is an honor to work with the Warminster Food Bank in support of our neighbors in need.”
