The Orange County Public School cafeteria team is happy to announce that we were able to collect 565 pounds of donated food during Every Kid Healthy Week in April. This is our third year sponsoring the food drive.
We began this annual food drive when we visited our local food pantry and asked them what time of year they had the greatest need. Most of us think of food donation during the winter holidays. The need for providing nourishing foods beyond the school day is year-round and the food pantry struggles to keep shelves full during the summer months. Donation boxes in the cafeterias and school lobbies quickly filled up and we joyfully delivered to the Love Outreach food pantry!
