Students at Maine West High School carried on a holiday tradition known as Cans Across Des Plaines, forming a human chain, passing food from the school to a food pantry four blocks away.

Several hundred students and faculty members took part.

Students collected the items during a weeklong food drive. Classes competed to see who could bring in the most donations.
