EDMONDS, Wash. - Edmonds-Woodway high schoolers are freezin' for a reason. 

Student council members are spending the night at the QFC in Edmonds to collect non-perishable food for the Edmonds Food Bank.  They started the food drive at 10 a.m. Saturday and will stay until 10 a.m. Sunday. 

Sage Carson was among six teenagers huddled up in a blanket outside the grocery store.

"My mom has been asking me to come home because it's so cold!" said Carson.

Student advisor Becky Kern was toughing it out with the students.

"We will go  home if it snows, I told the kids they could go home if they wanted but they all wanted to stay," she said. 

The colder it gets, the more cans of food they seem to collect.  The group estimated they had around 10,000 cans of food as of late Saturday night.  One donor offered up a check for $775.
