As a gesture of good will during the holiday season, boys from the football team are volunteering to serve food in the cafeteria at lunchtime. The school has lost cafeteria employees due to the school’s declining enrollment, causing slow food service and preparation. The football team stepped right in to help last week and will continue to do so indefinitely.
