Celebrating the opening of our 20th “Food for Thought” in-school pantry
Continuing with our goal of feeding hungry children from elementary school through high school ages, we recently opened a pantry inside the North Kansas City school district’s alternative high school. Happy staff members were on hand to greet us, help stock the shelves and learn about our reporting and replenishing system.
Our three programs help with this issue in some capacity:
The BackSnack program sends weekend food home with an elementary aged child.
Our “Food for Thought” pantries contain sack lunches for consumption during the school week or to take home in 20 Northland middle and high schools.
Our Community Food Kit program feeds entire families with shelf stable food, fresh bread, frozen ground beef and a large fresh produce box at a monthly distribution event.
