Early this September, Pickens High School and Easley High School of South Carolina went head to head not only on the football field but also in their own towns to raise money for their local Meals On Wheels programs. This was the third time the rival schools had faced-off for the “Ultimate Food Fight” trophy of the Sam Wyche Food Fight Bowl, named after its founder.
At half time the players lined up and members of the student council waited anxiously to hear who had raised the most money. For the third year in a row, Pickens won the “Food Fight” with an impressive $11,297.57. Easley also raised an impressive total of $8,472.71.
“We are so proud of all these students for the wonderful job they did,” Meg Benko, executive director of Pickens County Meals On Wheels said in an article from The Pickens Sentinel.
Pickens also won the football game with a final score of 27 to 13.
