New Today: (12/23) Lemon Road Elementary recently began recovering unused and unopened food from the cafeteria and offering it to its own families in need. Staff members worked with students to help them understand the importance of donating unused and unopened food that would otherwise be thrown away after lunch. Approximately 65 pounds of food is recovered each week. The food is used to supplement Power Packs, food that is sent home over the weekend to needy families. Families are also invited to come after school to pick up food directly from a refrigerator that was donated by Food Bus, a nonprofit that connects schools with food pantries. Food that remains at the end of each week is donated to a local food pantry by a parent volunteer. More school news.
