La PORTE — Area elementary schools have begun collecting for a food rescue to help reduce hunger in La Porte.

The rescue is coordinated by Purdue Extension Nutrition Education Program, which works to improve the nutrition and health of those with limited resources. Through this program, leftover food from elementary school lunches is salvaged and distributed to local food pantries.
