We have a newly established Snack Pantry at school that could use your help! There are children at CHES who do not have enough food to eat at home. All grades are finished eating lunch by 12:30, some as early as 11:00. That is a long time between lunch and dinner. Not all children have a filling snack after school. The After School Snack Pantry was established with these children in mind. The purpose of the pantry is to provide a healthy and filling snack for those in need so that they can sustain energy for homework and after school play.
How can you help? Please consider making a donation to the pantry. Donations can be dropped in the nurse’s office on your way into school. A list of donation ideas is below but we will accept any and all items. Please consider making your choices nutritious, easy to disperse, and NUT FREE when possible. We have access to refrigeration. Ongoing donations are needed, especially fresh food items and plastic baggies.
