The students from Assumption Middle School dropped off more than 1,600 items to a Wisconsin Rapids food pantry.
The food filled 48 boxes. Students say it's all about helping others.
"We have so much and they have so little, and we think we need more but they don't even have as much as we have already," said Assumption Middle School's Student Council Vice President Ellie Schill.
The students have collected the items for the last two weeks. They turned the food drive into a contest to see who could raise the most.
A 25-year-old woman is dead following a "disturbance that involved a gunshot" early Wednesday, Forest County Sheriff John Dennee said.
