Governor Kim Guadagno presented the Students Change Hunger Governor’s Cup Trophy to the students of John Witherspoon Middle School in a ceremony held at the Princeton High School Auditorium. The Governor’s Cup is awarded each year to the school that collects the most food and designs an exemplary campaign to educate and engage students and the community in the fight against hunger during the annual statewide Students Change Hunger Food Drive.

The entire student body of John Witherspoon Middle School attended the awards ceremony and cheered the students involved in the two extracurricular groups that managed the food drive at the school, Peer-to-Peer and DoSomething, as they accepted the Governor’s Cup.

Donations collected by John Witherspoon Middle School students—6,117 pounds of food and $2,405—were given to Mercer Street Friends Food Bank. In addition, as the “winning” food bank, Mercer Street Friends will receive a $5,000 donation from Stop & Shop.
