The Evergreen School District Foundation provides the High School students and their families within the Evergreen Public Schools with food and personal staples. Referred to as the “Pantry Project”, each high school has a dedicated location where students in need can pick up a bag of non-perishable food & personal items. The Pantry Project is currently working to get Pantry’s in each of the Middle Schools, as well.
Counselors are available in each school to assist students and no forms to complete.
DID YOU KNOW….
Nearly one half of the children in the Evergreen Public Schools qualify for the Washington State free and reduced lunch program. The vast majority of these students currently come from homes without the means to provide proper nutrition and basic needs.
IT TAKES A VILLAGE.
The Pantry Project is sustained purely by donations from the community. All donations are accepted at the program’s central donation location at Evergreen High School and distributed to the five schools for student pick-up.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!!
The Pantry’s are always in need of donated items such as:
- Food – Rice, Noodles, Boxed pasta, canned meats and vegetables, sauces, soups, etc.
- Personal Items – Toilet paper, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, tissues, soaps, shampoos, conditioner, etc.
- Or you can click on the donate here button and provide a monetary donation. In the comment section just say it is for the Pantry’s
