Tote Me Home - Food for Kids!

Project Report | Feb 10, 2020
Kids helping Kids

By Kristine Cleland | Food Pantry Board President

On an ordinary Tuesday in February, a group of Collinsville High School students brought in their donations that they collected for the Tote Me Home Program.  They came carpooling in cars and dropped off nearly 500 pounds of food collected specifically for the Tote Me Home menu.  These Collinsville High School students realize the need in our community and decided they wanted to help.  The Tote Me Home program is now up to 180 students (a new record!) in our school district.  These are students identified that are coming from food insecure homes and are receiving bags of food for the weekend.  There are 4 of these students at the High School for the first time in our program.  The Food Pantry is not entirely surprised by this generosity.  We have a very caring community and our children have learned by example how to take care of one another.  Please continue to support the Tote Me Home program in Collinsville, Il and help make a difference in a child's life.
