The bags of food are delivered to the students in a discreet manner once a week on Fridays throughout the school year. Anonymity will be assured.
If you would like for your child to participate in this program, please complete the form below.
Since we have a variety of students participating, it will not be possible for us to accommodate food allergies. We ask that you and your student read the labels carefully to ensure your student’s safety.
