Dear Students and Families,
Our school is participating in the School Pantry program, a program of The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Mis-souri. This program is intended specifically for Middle and High School students and is available to all students enrolled in our school.
Through the School Pantry, students may access free food items on an as-needed basis. Students are able to “shop” the available items and take only what interests them. School Pantries are hosted in areas of the school to allow for confidentiality while each student is “shopping”.
Schools are able to contact The Food Bank as needed and receive food items to stock their pantry. Items that are typically available include: canned entrée’s (such as soup, ravioli), tuna, canned veggies, pasta/pasta sauce, fruit cups, peanut butter/jelly, boxed and individually packaged cereal, snack items (such as granola bars) and hamburg-er helper. Some food items are packaged individually for use by the student, while other items are more family-friendly.
To participate in the School Pantry program, students or parents may contact your school counselor.
Thank you for allowing us to serve your family! If you have any questions about the School Pantry program, please feel free to contact:
Dana Carter at (573) 214-3000 or email@example.com.
