September 7 was “Food Drive Friday” at Nazareth School.
On the first Friday of each month, the students donate canned goods and non-perishable food to the Holy Family Food Bank. The food is collected outside of St. Francis Chapel at Mission San Diego de Alcala before the school’s weekly celebration of Mass. School parents pack and deliver the food donations. This year students will take part in the delivery and distribution of the food.
All students who bring at least two food items are permitted to wear their Nazareth School Spirit Shirt and jeans on “Two Can Tuesday”. This monthly food drive is just one way that the students practice the Scripture-based Core Values of the Sisters of Nazareth.
