Although they didn’t wear capes, students from White Knoll High played the role of hero during a brand-new event.

On Saturday, January 13, a group of 10 WKHS students joined their peers from nine other Midlands-area high schools to pack food boxes at the inaugural Hudson’s Heroes Tackle Hunger event. Together, the teens packed 2,000 boxes at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds, with each box containing enough food to feed someone for a week.

The Jim Hudson Automotive Group teamed up with Harvest Hope Food Bank and Souper Bowl of Caring to collaborate on Hudson’s Heroes Tackle Hunger. In their ongoing efforts to reduce the number of people in the Midlands who don’t know where their next meal will come from, representatives from Jim Hudson Automotive Group hope to “tackle hunger” on an annual basis with this new event.

WKHS students packed more than 200 boxes for the Lexington District One food pantry.
