What is Food-4-Families?

Food-4-Families is an in school-based pantry program designed to alleviate hunger for families and children in crisis. Food-4-Families pantries are located on the grounds of a school to provide a more readily accessible source of emergency food assistance to students and their families. As a need is identified by school staff, the pre-packed boxes containing a few days of emergency food, along with resource materials such as a pantry reference list and SNAP information, are distributed to the families in need.
