Winter Charity is here!
This year we are establishing a food pantry right here at Murray High! We will be taking donations of food, clothing, and gently used toys for families in need right here in Murray.
What is a food pantry?
The purpose of a School Pantry is to help alleviate needs through the provision of food and clothing to children and their families, at school.
Our food pantry will:
*Provide nutritious, healthy food to children at-risk of hunger to take home to eat.
*Provide clothing to students in need.
*Distribute food and clothing discreetly to students in need.
Food items should be shelf stable, nutritious easy to prepare so that kids can take care of themselves when parents are unable.
What should I donate?
-Peanut butter and jelly
-Pancake mix or Cake mix (for birthdays)
-Canned tuna or chicken
-Shelf stable milk and juice
-Canned soups and pasta meals (Easy Mac)
-Apple sauce, canned fruit
-Granola bars, fruit bars, ect.

Remember the 5 food groups when you are donating!
