Feeding America

Winner in: 2012

Social Innovator Award Winner

The mission of the School Pantry Program is to help alleviate child hunger in America through the provision of food to children and their families at school. School based pantries are located on the grounds of a school intended to provide a more readily accessible source of food assistance to low-income students and their families. Sites are consistently in the same location at the school’s campus, have set distribution schedules and offer ongoing food assistance services. School based pantries may have a permanent set up within a school, or may operate through a mobile distribution rotation where food is brought to the school campus.
