Woodland students give to Second Harvest

Students in Cypress House, one of four houses at Woodland School in Portola Valley, were winners in a year-end food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank, donating 986 pounds of food from 52 students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The school includes four houses: Cypress, Maple, Oak and Pine. As a long-standing tradition, each student is assigned to one of the houses, where they take part in athletic, academic and teamwork competitions. Each quarter, one house plans a local or global service project.

The entire school collected 3,249 pounds of canned food and other non-perishables, and donated $2,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank, says school spokesman Anita Grossman.
