Some local students will be going door-to-door this Halloween, but they won't all be asking for candy.
JP II students in Fort Saskatchewan are helping the hungry with the Trick or Eat Meal Exchange program.

Trick or Eat is a youth-led national initiative, however, instead of candy, students will be collecting food and funds for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank.
"It's been pretty successful in the past. We have a goal of 1000 pounds of food and $500 of monetary donations, so we're trying to break the record," said JP II student Katie Corrigan.
Students will be out from 5:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. on Halloween night.
Drop-offs will also be accepted at JP II during the week.
