Federal Way community invited to participate in ‘We Scare Hunger’ food drive event

For the fifth consecutive year, Federal Way Public Schools students will host the We Scare Hunger event to stamp out hunger. Students and other community members gather on Halloween to trick-or-treat for canned foods instead of candy. The community is invited to attend the event, wear costumes and bring canned food donations, which will be given to the Federal Way Multi-Service Center. Last year, students gathered more than 2,100 pounds of food, and the goal is to break that record with more donations this year.

This year’s rally will take place from 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Town Square Park, 31600 Pete Von Reichbauer Way S., Federal Way. Once the rally is completed, students will set out to trick or treat for canned food throughout Federal Way neighborhoods.
