South River High School held onto its crown as the county’s most charitable school during the annual Harvest for the Hungry – Kids Helping Kids campaign, the Anne Arundel County Food Bank announced at its annual awards ceremony recently.

South River High School collected 8,418 pounds of food and $14,788 in cash during the campaign. Its food weight total beat the second-place finisher by almost 4,000 pounds. Severna Park High School came in second place in money collected with $12,356.

“South River High School is often called a ‘School with a Heart,” said South River Principal Will Myers. “The Harvest for the Hungry is a school-wide focus which involves staff, students, parents, and the community.”

For most food and money combined, South River High School’s total of 126,725 bested Severna Park High School by just under 25,000 units. Central Middle School was third at almost 71,000. The top elementary school was Piney Orchard at 39,200. Each dollar collected translates to eight pounds of food.
