The Feud for Food is a two-week annual food drive competition within the Pulaski County Schools where the winner gets possession of the Compassion Cup trophy until next year.  Students and staff across the district donate non-perishable food items that are distributed to families through community agencies and local churches.

Since the Feud began twenty-one years ago, the students and staff of Pulaski County Schools have collected 1,302,532 food items for families in our community.  This year, the North and South Schools collected a combined total of 57,662 food items with the south collecting the most to win the Compassion Cup.
