Please consider helping the pantry in providing food for the school age children in the Pickerington Local School District (excluding zip code 43068) who live in poverty.
The school district provides a summer lunch program at Tussing Elementary during the month of June, but does not offer any service for the remaining six weeks of the summer break. The Fairfield County Foundation has graciously provided the pantry a grant for this program. However, additional support is needed.
We are asking for your financial support to purchase food at a deeply discounted rate from the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. With your support, the pantry will be able to provide each child a weekly meal basket including the following items for only $5.34 each week: Soup (2 cans), Pasta with Meat (2 cans), Macaroni and Cheese (2 boxes), Pork and Beans (2 cans), Vegetables (2 cans), Fruit (2 cans), and Snacks (8 items).
You can also help by sponsoring a child for the entire summer for only $32.00, by donating a completed meal package, and/or by volunteering during our assembly of the packages for the children.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting this program. By working together, we can provide this much needed service for our children.
Families may walk-in during the following service hours to receive a weekly meal package for each of their school age children during the summer school break:
- Arrive between 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays and Saturdays
