Access to Healthy Foods,  Community Involvement
Kids and adults have been helping to stock and distribute healthy foods from a pantry. The pantry has been open on certain dates for the community to come in and pick up healthy meals. Also students are able to use the pantry before and after school hours to get snacks. There is also access sometimes during the day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have stocked our pantry once a month, but do not always make it to the end of the month before running out of food and kids will ask for more healthy snacks.
