Students at the Norfield Congregational Church in Weston fasted Friday in an effort to fight world hunger.
Sixteen students from grades six through eight took part in the "30 Hour Famine," a voluntary fast meant to raise awareness of global hunger.
Every hour of the fast is marked by donations to local and worldwide hunger initiatives, organizers say.
According to organizers, $35 can help feed a child for a month in some parts of the world.
The church says it expects to raise more than $4,000.
The same students will hold a coin and can drive at Weston Town Center Saturday.
