We have partnered with Minnie's Food Pantry to help feed students and families. This summer, Minnie's will be conducting five drive-thru pick-up events at Scott Johnson Middle School. Their first event with us is this Wednesday, June 10th, from 12:00p.m.-2:00p.m. Those who show up can expect to receive a care package of groceries that are set to feed a family of four for two weeks. The only thing you will need to do to receive a package is:

• Come to Scott Johnson Middle School in an automobile (this is a drive-thru event)
• Be prepared to tell them how many people are in your household
• Show them your driver's license

The food boxes will be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis. You will not be asked to fill out any paperwork.

If you haven't already, sign up to receive reminder text messages about this Wednesday's event and their other four service dates with us!

If you have any questions, please email Mrs.Trina Moody at [email protected]
