ST. JOSEPH — Every Friday a line of grocery bags can be seen lined up alongside the wall of St. Joseph High School’s front office.

Inside these bags are a unique array of donated food items that students from various classes bring in. The initiative is referred to as the Weekend Food Program, in which classes at the high school take turns bringing in food to be redistributed to low-income students and families.
