SHMS StuCo Delivers Food to the Pantry, 11/30/2021

The SHMS StuCo delivered food to the Spring Hill Food Pantry on November 29th. The food was collected in a “block the door” food drive at SHMS during the week of November 15-19. Students brought food to block “doorways” of classrooms and those teachers with blocked doors gave a free day to students on Tuesday, November 23rd.

StuCo timed their donation to help replenish the pantry’s foodstuffs right after the Thanksgiving holiday. While at the food pantry, students sorted and organized food donations and stocked the shelves. Many expressed surprise at how much work goes into setting up and running a food pantry. StuCo Sponsor Lindsay Davey expressed that she wished the students also could have participated in a distribution event with the public to witness the true impact the pantry makes in the community. 

The Spring Hill Food Pantry is located at 210 N. Webster. For those wanting to deliver donations it is recommended you contact Sharon Rethmeyer at 592-5433. Rethmeyer also noted that March & April months see fewer donations and food drives from local organizations would be very welcome in the spring.
