Pack the Pantry Challenge- REGISTER NOW! - 10-28-2014








The first annual NBC 6 Pack the Pantry Food Drive will kick off Monday, November 3, 2014 and run through Friday, December 5, 2014. Participating schools from Caddo and Bossier parishes are invited to compete in collecting non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana to help the 1 in 6 individuals in our community that are food insecure.




Participation will be open to Elementary, Junior High/Middle, and High Schools in Caddo, Bossier, Bienville, Claiborne, DeSoto, Red River and Webster parishes. Schools that operate joint divisions (i.e, Elementary/Middle and Middle/High) will be allowed to compete under separate divisions. The deadline for schools to register for participation is Today! Upon registration, each school will receive a food drive packet with rules/instructions, and tips on participating in the Drive. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!






Prizes will be awarded to winning schools by classifications of Elementary, Junior High/Middle, and High School, for a total of $6,750. In order to keep all schools on a level playing field, winning schools will be based on the weight of food per student.



Prizes include (for each division)

1st place: $1,000 cash prize – donated by PEPSI Co.

2nd place: $750 cash prize – donated by Frito-Lay

3rd place: $500 cash prize – donated by Brookshire’s


In order for all schools, to compete on the same playing field, the winning schools will be based on weight of food per student.

Note: if your school has more than one division (i.e., Elementary/Middle, Jr High/High) each division will compete separately, fill out separate forms, and must keep food collection separate. All food must be donated to the Food Bank.
