Hunger frequently hits home in more ways than anyone is willingto acknowledge.

That is why the students at Bay Ridge and Sunset Park’s High Schoolof Telecommunications held a food drive last year, collecting 300pounds of canned and non-perishable goods for hungry New Yorkers.Their actions earned them recognition from the national SchoolsFight Hunger program.

Telecommunications HS, located at 350 67th Street, is one of fewerthan 2,000 schools labeled a National School of Distinction for the2010-2011 school year.

The Schools Fight Hunger program is a two-year-old initiativefocused on connecting and celebrating schools nationwide working totackle the hunger cause. For more information on the program and tosee the profile pages of all of the honorees,
