A student-led movie night at Clarksburg School raised more than $400 for the Berkshire Food Project.
The nine girls involved in the group presented the check for $411.50 to Darlene Ellis, the non-profit's kitchen manager, on Monday.
Hundreds were fed Monday evening at the Berkshire Food Project's Thanksgiving Dinner, part of its charge in making sure no one goes hungry this holiday season.
The non-profit's new Executive Director Kim McMann said she feels this annual event is one that truly brings people together.
For a $30 donation, guests can come to the First Congregational Church on Main Street and sample all these soups (including other interesting-sounding varieties like Tomato Cabbage and and Red Clam With Sausage), eaten in bowls created and donated by local potters — bowls that the guests then get to take home with them "as a constant reminder" that not everyone in the community has enough to eat.
