NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN)– It’s more than just about candy and costumes this Halloween at St. Bernard Academy in Nashville.

It’s also about food and lots of it!

It benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Students collected almost 1,600 items.

They celebrated those numbers Monday during an assembly called the Monster Mash.
