• 6th Annual Stock the Pantry brings in more than 330K Food Items!!

    Wow! We are truly amazed by the number of food items that were donated this year at our 6th Annual Stock the Pantry Food Drive!
    This year, 110k MORE food items were donated this year compared to the food drive last year for a total of 336,850 food items, which exceeded our goal of 300K food items to kick off the 2019/20 school year. 
    A HUGE thank you to all of the participating teams this year, and for all that came to the Stock the Pantry Party with donations as well. 
    The winning team for the food drive competition was Newman-Dailey Resort Properties (78,399 food items).  The Rookie of the year award went to Hilary & Reverie with 43,848 food items. 
    We are so thankful for all of these teams and the community coming together this year to participate in the Stock the Pantry Food Drive; it helps us tremendously to be able to kick of our in-school services.  We went from having NO food on our pantry shelves, to now being stocked and ready for our first snack service on Friday, August 30th, and for our first distribution of backpacks the first week in September.
    Thank you again!

  • Stock the Pantry 2019: Help us Reach our Goal!

    As we are just about a month away from the official load in for Stock the Pantry, 2019, we wanted to revisit some of the years past so that you can see how we have been able to exceed our goal year after year, and need your help to do so again this year!

    Last year, just over 227K of individual food items were collected, making our goal for 2019 300K food items! 

    Our Stock the Pantry Party is Thursday, August 22nd, which is open to the public and not just the participating teams. To enter the party, please bring 5 food items to help reach towards the goal of 300K!

    Getting to this goal will allow us to start the school year with our pantries stocked to serve the 3,300 kids in our backpack and snack programs. Thank you for your support!
