'Me to We' is all about caring for others and, at Saugeen District Secondary School, Halloween was about more than 'trick or treating' for candy.

More than a dozen students dressed up in costume and went out 'trick or canning' collecting non-perishable food items for the local food bank as part of the 'Halloween for Hunger' campaign.

Aimee Bertin, President of the local 'Me to We', said that they wanted to "do something that would make a difference".  The group of young people eventually collected some 500 items of food for the local Food Bank.

"It's awesome what these young students have done," said Food Bank Director for Port Elgin, Jennifer Wilson.  "Halloween has actually been a very good food collection source for the food bank but we are going to need a lot more by Christmas."
