Students from Minnehaha Elementary donated hundreds of pounds of food Tuesday and then got a tour and lesson, right.

Arrowhead Volunteer Coordinator Deade Johnson said the amount of people coming in to get food has been going up.

There are also weeks when donations have almost doubled from the previous year.

"This is the time of the year we get more donations," Johnson said. "People have been really generous."
