WEST AKRON — Every class at St. Sebastian Parish School has the opportunity to help feed other area students with a special bag lunch. For the last three years, these bag lunches have been an ongoing program at the school.

Each month, a school grade is responsible for donating all the food for this program. The students work together to fill a lunch bag with a sandwich, chips, fruit and cookies, as shown above. The lunches are then delivered to the Good Samaritan Hunger Center, where they are distributed to local community centers and given to families to use the next day for a child’s school lunch.

This year alone, St. Sebastian students will feed more than 1,000 children, according to school officials.
