MCDS Chosen as a Top School in Annual Food Drive

Madison Country Day School has been chosen as a top school for NBC 15’s Share Your Holidays Food Drive for 2013, an annual event focused on driving donations of meals from schools and businesses across the Madison area.  The school donated a total of 2,478 meals, or 6.81 meals per student, placing it second among area schools in per capita donations, an achievement that every member of the MCDS community worked hard to accomplish: one student even accepted extra donations in lieu of gifts at his recent birthday party.

The city-wide food drive raised a grand total of over two million meals , all of which will be handled and distributed by  Second Harvest Food Bank, southern Wisconsin’s largest hunger relief organization, which serves over 140,000 hungry people each year.
