The Collinsville Food Pantry began the school year with close to 200 requests for Tote Me Home bags from the Collinsville School District.  We serve the 12 schools that are in the district.  This is the most that has ever been requeste!  The Pantry had to have a discussion on limiting the number of bags we provide.  We don't want to but financially 200 bags per week is close to what we can afford and we are just beginning our school year.  Our families have been hit hard from COVID 19 virus.  Many are not working or not able to return to work full time.  This school year is a hybrid model and remote learning.  Students choose whether to attend school 2 days a week and the other days remote or all spend all days learning at home.  We do NOT want to turn anyone away! 

The attached photo is 1 example of the menu that is sent home with the student.  It is enough food for the weekend for them.  There are 4 menus that rotate through the schedule.  The wonderful KC Ladies Auxiliary continue to volunteer to pack and distribute the bags to the different schools.  They are working with less people per our State's restrictions.  Please continue to support us!
