    What is it….

    SPACE

    Woodgrove High School is establishing a food pantry this school year to serve students in need. The goal of the project is to provide food for students whose families are experiencing financial hardship. To accomplish this, we plan to provide a bag of staple food products once a week to help supplement meals these students eat at school as well as provide meals for weekends, and longer school breaks. Additionally, students from our special education transition program will be shopping in the community to help stock the pantry, as well as learn job skills organizing, packing, and maintaining the inventory

    To make this project possible, we are asking the community for your support.  The Leesburg Costco has graciously donated two shelves to store the food and we have acquired others from the school. Now, we need help stocking those shelves. We are accepting any single serve items that can be sent home with these students every weekend.  Some examples of these items would be: canned pasta, soup, canned meals, mac and cheese cups, noodles, granola bars, and any other items that would be easily fit into a backpack. All donated food can be dropped off at Woodgrove High School’s front desk. We are also accepting monetary donations to be used by our transition students when shopping for the pantry. Checks can be made out to Woodgrove High School, please write “Food Pantry” on the memo line.

    We are creating this program to help our students.  All information and involvement with this program will be kept confidential.  If you know of a student that you believe would benefit from these services, you may contact the school counseling office at 540-751-2607.
