After a month of going door-to-door and holding special events, students from across the Quad Cities gathered at the River Bend Food Bank in Moline Thursday night for the final weigh-in of the Student Hunger Drive. Everyone wanted to know which of the 19 Quad City area schools collected the most food, by weight.

The total showed students hauled in 767,455 pounds of food. Alleman High School collected the most food, bringing in 165,249 pounds and earned a first place spot in its division.
