Lutcher Theater and David Self Ford joined together to Stomp out Hunger-Focus on Food. A challenge was issued to local schools to fill a Ford Focus with non-perishable food items by Jan. 17. It’s an attempt to remind the public to donate food throughout the year and not just during the holidays.

Schools participating were offered a special rate on tickets for the Tuesday or Wednesday performances of STOMP, a show where a unique eight member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments for their magnificent rhythms. The participating schools were also invited to meet the cast in a post-performance reception on Tuesday. The school that collected the most food received a Stomp out Hunger-Focus on Food trophy for their school. The food will be donated to Orange Christian Services.

Schools participating were Bridge City High School, Orangefield High School, Community Christian School, West Orange-Stark, Lumberton ISD, Groves Middle School and Silsbee High School.
