It’s the battle of the barrels as local high schools see who can gather the most canned goods in a friendly competition between Armijo, Fairfield and Rodriguez high schools, and the alternative schools, Matt Garcia Learning Center, Sem Yeto Satellite and the Public Safety Academy.
The winner brings in a catered meal for the entire school from Fuddruckers.
“Any time kids are involved in doing projects like this, raising money, gathering food for different organizations like rescue missions, we’re all in,” said George Almeida, owner of the local Fuddruckers, and seven others in the Bay Area, Oregon and Idaho. “It’s a good thing and everyone should support that.”
