Shelton: Broomfield athletics helping to tackle community hunger

Broomfield High School is attempting to sack hunger through its 5th annual Broomfield FISH Canned Food Drive. And the student council-sponsored event is tapping one of the school’s most dedicated communities.

The single largest canned food drive FISH stages each year plans on running collections at a number of Broomfield sporting events, starting 6 p.m. today with Class 4A state soccer semifinals game at Elizabeth Kennedy Stadium. Collections will also be held 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern League Cheer and Pom Championship in the Eagle Gym; And 7 p.m. Friday, the school will wrap up its canned food collection during the Niwot-Broomfield football at Elizabeth Kennedy Stadium.

Broomfield’s student council purchased pom-poms as incentives for non-perishable food donations. For every three cans of food an individual donates at Friday’s football game, they will receive a set of blue and white pom-poms.

Broomfield FISH is the town’s primary human services agency and food bank.
