Impact

In 2016, our school pantries provided 50,094 pounds of food for 19,802 individuals in about 3,686 households.  And five of the pantries didn't even open until the fall. 

School pantries provide a welcoming and convenient space for students, their families, and the surrounding community to access nutritious food. Student volunteers often run the pantries, helping to remove the stigma of needing food, and learning the valuable lesson of helping others in need. 

A student can grab a snack or quick meal during the school day, or someone can come in and choose from a balanced selection of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, and even meats, to help feed their family.
