Food for Schools:Sundee explained the food pantry has a donor, and they have set up a small pantry in our school. They come once a month and keep it stocked. It is for students, families, anyone at Adams who is hungry at home. If teachers hear anything that indicates that someone is hungry, they can get food from the pantry at school plus go to the food pantry for a grocery cart full with no questions asked. They keep inventory full and trust that it is going to people who need it.
