Food Pantry

PTA runs a backpack food program called Food Pantry. This program is a food assistance program that provides a backpack full of food over the weekends for those students whose families have shown a need. The food is placed in a backpack which makes it easy to carry home.

This program is run entirely through donations. Our extra supply of food is currently running low, and in order to feed the students, we are asking for the community's help.  Please look on the white board near the Front Office for our latest needs.


You may bring your donations to your child’s classroom or to the donation table located near the Front Office. Thank you for helping these students!  


The Back Pack Food Program would like to thank the following individuals, businesses, and organizations for their continued support and help with the backpacks. We could not do it without your help! Thank You!
