October 15, 2012 - The largest school canned food drive in the city kicked off on October 15 at St. Charles College in Sudbury.  Students at the school have one week to canvas neighbourhoods and collect 60 thousand non-perishable food items for the Sudbury Food Bank.
 
The drive started twenty-seven years ago.  Principal Patty Mardero says, “When the weather gets cooler, the Sudbury Food Bank relies on our helping hand.  That time has come and it is time for us to deliver.”  
 
Last year, the school surpassed its goal and collected 120-thousand cans.  This was the largest single donation in the history of the Sudbury Food Bank. 
 
Even with the forecast looking dismal this week, students were urged to forge ahead and get out into their neighbourhoods to collect cans. 
 
The high school is also supported by its feeder schools.  Each year, students at St. Bernadette, St. Raphael, Pius XII, St. Andrew, St. David and St Paul and St. John take up the cause.
