    Our district has a large percentage of disadvantaged families and students that qualify for free or reduced lunches. We experience many students that need snacks or food supplements during the day to keep them focused and alert. They do not have the financial means to purchase items from a vending machine or even bring food items from home to prevent hunger issues while in attendance during a school day. We worry there are no food items during the weekend to help subside hunger issues for families. A food pantry on our campus would certainly help bridge this nutrition concern with many our students.
