This year’s Food Ball chairs from Aberdeen and Hoquiam high schools met Monday with the folks from Coastal Harvest to get acquainted and share their event calendars.
Each year since 1981, the two schools have spent the first half of November collecting donations of cash and food for Coastal Harvest. The school that collects the most wins bragging rights for the year.
Aberdeen’s Food Ball chairs are Patrick Hunt, Abbie Bradt, Molly Scroggs, Madi Niemi, Josh Fritts, Emmy Walsh, Isabel Stevens, Brooke Solan, Jimmy Boora and Lauren King.
Hoquiam’s chairs are Taylor Strom, Kara Blodgett, Annette Alejandre, Amelia Moir, Emily Daniels and Trey Brydon.
The final money count and weigh-in will take place at the Grays Harbor PUD office at 5 p.m. Nov. 12. Aberdeen has dominated the past three years. The equivalent of nearly 1.6 million pounds of food was collected in 2018.
