North Bend High students helping homeless classmates through food pantry
NORTH BEND, Ore. -- Students at North Bend High School are doing their part to help classmates who are homeless.
They've been operating the district's first food pantry since October.
The food is donated by South Coast Food Share to help students and their families.
The pantry serves an average of 10 students a week and so far has provided meals to a least 25 different families.
"Any North Bend High School student, any North Bend High School family and any North Bend district family can come access the food pantry,” says Melissa Downs with Youth Transition Program. “If they are out of the high school, they need to make an appointment first and then we set them up for food boxes."
The food pantry is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday during lunch or after school.
