Peanut Butter Beats Jelly In Food Donation Showdown

LINDEN—As one of the many activities held to celebrate Catholic School Week, the members of Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Academy’s Student Council conducted their own version of the football championship game.

Each student in the school was asked to vote for their favorite food team by bringing in a jar of peanut butter or jelly. Each of the four days that the jars were collected represented one of the four quarters of a football game. The jars were counted by the student council members and recorded on the official scoreboard.


At the end of the week, the scoreboard read “Peanut Butter 70, Jelly 25.” The students packed the jars in boxes and donated them to the local food pantry.

Meredith Mannino, the Student Council adviser, said the students enjoy being able to help people in need.
