Thanksgiving Food Drive

Dear Menchaca Families,


We invite you to join us in our Thanksgiving Food Drive for our Community Partner and Supporter Manchaca United Methodist Church.


They provide so much help to our school and surrounding community we would like to give back to them. They provide a weekly food pantry drive-through every Saturday morning from 9 am to 11 am where families can receive food, toiletries, and diapers.

Here at Menchaca they help in providing food packs for families for the weekend. At Akins High School they provide snacks and food packs for students who are experiencing homelessness.
