Thursday, March 8th from 4 to 6pm was the first mobile pantry distribution at Garden City Elementary School. This school is the location of a brand new school-based pantry that will open for school year 2018-2019. Leading up to the school-based pantry opening next August, 5 mobile pantry distributions will take place the remainder of this school year.
Even though it was really cold and chilly, volunteers and school staff helped serve 145 families and 664 individuals. This is pretty amazing for the very first event at a new site.
Site Coordinator (Ericka Rodriguez) and two volunteers brave the chilly temps to serve families in their community.
Site Coordinator (Ericka Rodriguez), Assistant Principal (Beau Hill) and Principal (Pamela Hardy) were great in making this happen. They are passionate about feeding the families and community that the school sets in and recognize that there is a very high need in this area.
