“There was a high need for breakfast food items at the food pantry and the students at St. Mark school rose to the challenge,” said Diana Meunier, member of the St. Mark Advisory Board.

The Kelly’s Corner team arrived around 9:30 a.m., prepped kids and staff for the live segment with a practice run through prior to broadcast.

After the “live shot” was completed an additional segment was taped to run on Fox 29’s 6 p.m. news program tonight.

Collected foods included cereals, granola bars, fruit snacks, pouches, fruit / pudding cups, and other dry packaged goods according to a release from the school.

“St. Mark students are often included in Snyder-Girotti events, and the school felt this was a great way to give back,” said Meunier.
