Gleaners Food Distribution to Continue Throughout the Summer!
We are excited to announce that we have extended our partnership with Gleaners through the school year and continuing through the summer. They will continue to be set up in the FHS parking lot on the following dates:
May 26 June 9 June 23 July 7 July 21 August 4 August 18 September 1 September 15 September 29
This is a drive-up service that allows our families to remain in their vehicles and pick up a box of grocery-type items.
The Gleaners Mobile Food Pantry will continue bi-weekly pending no closures for inclement weather.
With the extension of the program, there will be a change to the information that we are required to collect. We are now required to collect the following information for each household beginning immediately:
Full Name, address, # of people living in the household, # of children in the household, program eligibility
Please note that if you request to pick up for 4 different households, we will need to collect the information for all 4 households. To streamline this process, we use Link 2 Feed. The Link 2 Feed client card stores your personal information and can be presented at any food distribution and it makes the interaction with our staff much quicker once families sign up. The sign-in process is minimal and we will be conducting sign-ins onsite periodically at our food distributions.
Pick-up will take place in the Klein Road parking lot at Fraser High School. Vehicles will have to pass by our district breakfast & lunch distribution location at the cafeteria, so we are strongly encouraging everyone who does not receive meals at their child’s school to take them home!
