District 300 will open Kane County’s first school-based food pantry at Carpentersville Middle School on Wednesday, August 31 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:45pm followed by the grand opening at 5pm.
The D300 food pantry is expected to serve 100 families (or 500 people) weekly. Students and families in need will be able to shop every Wednesday, beginning August 31, and bring home enough food to last a week.
The food pantry is open to all families and students enrolled in a District 300 school. Families that visit the food pantry are asked to bring an ID and bags or boxes for food.
Individuals who would like to make donations to the D300 Food Pantry can contact Craig Raddatz at email@example.com
