Some students in Huntington North High School's New Tech program are finding ways to make delicious, healthful recipes out of food that is donated to others.

The sophomore chemistry and language arts classes spent some time Friday, Sept. 18, at Love In The Name of Christ, touring the food pantry and learning about how Love INC serves families in need of groceries.

The field trip was part of a month-long project to take what the students have learned in New Tech and put it to use in a real-life situation.
