At William Wiley Elementary in West Richland, WA, they have an annual food drive.  Two years ago, the Apple Cup Canned Food Battle began.  Children donated canned goods and instant meal packages into their favorite team’s box.  We have a ton more Cougar fans than Husky fans in this part of the state, so the Cougars have won each year. 

My son is a Husky fan, and for the past two years has actually talked me into buying additional food just for the canned food drive!  In the past, I had always just given what I had in the cupboard and stocked back up for the family next time I went to the store.  But for the past two years, I have specifically gone to the store just to buy food to donate!  He puts the food in the Husky box, but they have yet to win.

Last year, the William Wiley Elementary Canned Food Drive brought in over 2,664 pounds of donated food!  And, as I tell my son, when it helps other people out, it’s okay if your favorite team loses.
