MUST Neighborhood Pantry
Serving Children and Families in Crisis
MUST Neighborhood Pantry's mission is to eliminate hunger for at-risk students in local schools, giving them a greater opportunity to succeed in school and life. We partner with schools by providing food and toiletries to at risk students and families through our campus-based food pantry program. We work very closely with their school social workers, counselors and staff to identify children and families in crisis. Once a month, including the summer, families can come to the pantry and choose items their families need and enjoy. Below you will find more information about how you can assist these children and their families in your community.
Contact your child's school counselor or social worker to be considered for the Neighborhood Pantry program. The schools are responsible for selecting families who qualify.
