Non-perishable food donations will be accepted from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday next week, with each participating high school hosting a different day or days.

Fordson High School will collect on Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 19 and 20), Edsel Ford High on Wednesday (Oct. 21) and Dearborn High on Thursday and Friday (Oct. 22 and 23).

Students and community members can drive through at any school during its collection time and drop off non-perishable food.  The food will be donated to Zaman Foundation, which will have a truck onsite during the collections.

Monetary donations can be made through a special fund set up through the Dearborn Education Foundation.

This year marks the sixth annual Battle Against Hunger.  The event involves Dearborn, Fordson and Edsel Ford high schools collaborating, and sometimes competing, to gather non-perishable food and donations for a local charity.  In recent years, many elementary and middle schools have also participated, together donating tons of food annually.
