Worth County Middle School students need your help to feed the hungry and get a chance to win a trip to an Atlanta Falcons game.

The school is accepting canned good donations for the FalCan food drive.

Worth County Elementary School won the competition a couple of years prior. They collected more than 16,000 pounds of food and won 60 tickets to a Falcons game.

The middle school principal said the real goal is to teach students.

"Love to see young people participating in social causes I think it gives young people a good reason to give back to the community," said Principal Tiffany Sevier. "And it's just a wonderful opportunity for Worth County to donate to second harvest food bank." 

Anyone can drop off donations. Boxes are at the entry way of the school.
