The elementary school communities in Sudbury are incredibly gracious contributors to the Sudbury Food Pantry. They provide nearly 35% of what the Food Pantry distributes each month to 60-80 families. Every donated item allows the pantry to serve its mission of helping any individual or family in need. More information about the Sudbury Food Pantry can be found at http://sudburyfoodpantry.
As an ongoing social action experience, 4th and 5th graders encourage Loring students and staff to donate what they can to the school's collection one Friday every month. On collection day the leading class/es of 4th and 5th graders gather, count, sort, and pack donations, and then carry the boxed donations to volunteers’ vehicles for delivery to the Food Pantry. Collection days are busy days!
Parent/Guardian/Grandparent volunteers are always appreciated for both sorting, driving, or both. To find out more contact Laura Porter, or sign up here.
