School Pantry Program

NOTE:  If you are a school contact and need a refill - please use the link above.

Student dignity is a top priority when filling our school pantries. Whether it's a small snack drawer or a whole closet, we work with the space a school has available and do our very best to only fill the pantry with name-brand items the student will recognize and feel comfortable eating in front of their peers. We provide ready-to-eat items and take-home items. School staff have access to this food and can immediately help a student who is hungry. The student can grab something to eat immediately or discretely fill their backpack with take-home items for later.
