Pullman Schools PantryFamilies in America go hungry every year. Help us provide them with enough to eat.
Those of us at the Pullman Schools Pantry Program hope that you had an enjoyable summer holiday and that you are as excited to be back at school as we are to provide for you again! The first delivery of supplemental weekend food bags will greet students on Friday, October 1. In the meantime, if you are interested in receiving our pantry bags during the 2021 – 2022 school year, whether you are a first-timer recipient or returning for more of the pantry’s offerings, please be sure to sign up at pullmanschoolspantryprogram.org/online-registration-form/
In addition to our gratitude for the numerous individuals and businesses that have allowed us to stay on track and meet the challenges facing so many – we throw a special thank you out to our volunteers and to Birch & Barley and SEL for their ongoing support of helping us help others. You know who you are and please know how appreciative we are of you being part of our successful story!
Despite an unpredictable and challenging period – the continued generosity from those both within and outside our community – enabled the Pullman Schools Pantry Program (PSPP) to continue its mission to provide for those challenged by food insecurity. Since the school closures back in mid-March, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PSPP at times was providing upwards of 360 weekend supplemental food bags for the children enrolled in our program and the Pullman school district. Working with local restaurants and food services, our creation of a food rescue program has enabled us to provide meals to 65+ of our most in need families on an ongoing basis. This is in addition to the provision of the Farmers to Families fresh food boxes when they are available.
It continues to be a gift to meet the needs of our children and community. We look forward to doing more of the same now that the school year is back on track and Pullman Schools Pantry Program can continue to provide so the children can thrive!
Our mission is to feed and promote the value of nutrition in food insecure children, so they can continue to be successful learners.
Healthy, full students are able to focus, resulting in better learning.
