The high school is challenging the public to give their grains as part of a “challenge”.

Announced yesterday was the ” Great Grain Challenge” by the Haliburton Highlands Secondary School.

According to the school, the challenge is more of a call-to-arms than an actual challenge. The challenge has parents, guardians and concerned citizens taking items of food to the high school between now and February 25th.

In terms of where the challenge comes in, HHSS says that the schools under the Trillium Lakelands District School Board are competing against each other to collect the most grains locally.

The school says that all of the grains that are collected through the challenge are going to be distributed between all of the food banks across the county.

TLDSB says schools will get points based on the type of grain brought in, with the school getting one point for every grain product and two points for every whole grain product. The school with the most points at the end of the challenge gets a trophy.
