Food Wars Supply Mission

Food Fight!  Well, no - not exactly THAT kind of food fight....  The Food Wars at DPCA each year are part of our ongoing desire as a school to help the Arkansas Valley Christian Mission with food supplies  - and especially at Thanksgiving time. 

Kindergarten took third place this year, with 358 points, 3rd and 4th grade placed 2nd, with 650 points, and first place honors went to Mr Hoppen's 5th and 6th grade class, with 952 points.

Food Wars is an all-school event sponsored by the DPCA Beta Club, our local student chapter of the National Beta Club, a nationwide honor society.  Students participate by classes, with a friendly "war" based on point values for various food items that the Mission has requested.  Students earn positive points for their class by bringing in foods that Beta Club has designated as having positive point value, and can "bomb" other classes with food that has been given a negative point rating.  In the end, the class with the most total points wins, and then all the items are boxed up and delivered to the Mission.

Jessee, a sixth grader in Mr. Hoppen's winning class, enjoyed the Food Wars and noted, "It was fun to watch the other classes try to bomb us.  A whole bunch of the teenagers came to bomb us, but we still won." Congratulations to Jessee and all the students in the 5th and 6th grade - enjoy your pizza party!
