     It has been an amazing first four days of Food Fight 2011!  The scoring now totals over 4,700 and last year there was 5,938 scored in the entire first half!  The North Lowell Team tried to take control early as Ada/Lowell 5, Sneakers, Springrove Variety, Dollar General and newcomer Great Clips all muscled their way to a fairly substantial lead.  However, the South Team was once again bolstered by team leader Schneider Manor with food and cash donations.  Also, the FROM Thrift Shop was lopsided with South donations and Redfrog Technologies along with Greenridge Realty tossed in some added South scoring.  It will be an interesting week, as the first quarter ends this next Friday!  Don't forget, there are over 50 Lowell businesses offering Food Fight Specials.  Just donate a non-perisha
