The FOOD VAULT Inc. was the beneficiary of MacGregor Collegiate Institute (MCI) students and staff getting pie slapped.

MCI's student council challenged the school to bring in nonperishable food items for the Food Bank and Resource Centre serving the Municipality of North Norfolk to get a chance to pie both teachers and students.

Jewell Thompson, a Grade 12 student, helped organize the event. She says the idea came from when she was in Grade 9 before COVID-19 hit, and the school organized events like this regularly.

In total, the school brought in 266 nonperishable food items, 136 more than double of the items needed to pie slap their Principal, Kyle McKinstry.

"He (McKinstry) dodged the first pie, and then we were able to get him again because we had an extra one prepared, thankfully," says Thompson.

The event took place on March 3rd, and saw three staff members and four students got creamy for a good cause.

"It was just about giving back to our community and doing whatever we can. Collecting nonperishable food items is a really easy and effective way to do that," notes Thompson.
