Hannibal’s program for at-risk teens goes above and beyond its goal in collecting food for the community’s BuddyPack program.

Teens in Motion had set a goal of collecting 2,000 cans of pasta for the program that provides school kids with food to get them through the weekend.

Officials reported Monday that Teens in Motion collected 2,500 cans of pasta in the “Be a Buddy” drive.

The BuddyPack Program provides nutritious meals and snacks for kids when school is not in session.

As a reward, the classroom that collected the most cans in each participating school gets a pizza party. And, the individual who collected the most cans, 7th grader Rylee McAfee, gets a season pass to the Hannibal Aquatic Center and a Teens in Motion gift basket.
