Helping The Hungry 
Desert Ridge Junior High Students, Staff and families donated a massive amount of food today to the United Food Bank.  This is the 13th year the school has made such an awesome contribution.  They are hoping to break last year's record of more than 36,000 pounds of food!  A mountain of rice bags, barrels and barrels of canned goods, and cases of water lined the hallway today, ready to be loaded onto the Food Bank semi-trailer.  Students brought their muscle to help load the enormous boxes.
