"It's a lot of food," said Hilton Head Island High School sophomore Malik Robinson as he joined other students in helping to sort and stack food donated by parents in principal Amanda O'Nan's office on Friday. The food drive was prompted amid concerns that the federal Women, Infants and Children program might lose funding as a result of the government shutdown. WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for low-income pregnant women, recently pregnant women, those who are breastfeeding or who have a new baby, and infants and children ages 1 to 5. O'Nan said the donated food would be distributed later in the day to students at the school who are enrolled in the school's free breakfast and lunch program.
