Green Dot Public Schools TN, GDPST, has been afforded an opportunity, in partnership with the Mid-South Food Bank, to serve people most in need in our communities. GDPST will host three mobile food pantries to feed 350 families next week at Kirby Middle School, Hillcrest Middle School & Fairley High School. The boxes will contain enough canned goods, cereal, protein and possibly fresh produce to feed a family of four for a week.
We need volunteers (please use the link to sign up) who will sort & package food the day it is delivered from the Mid - South Food Bank and volunteers to distribute food the following day to families. Feel free to volunteer as often as you are available. Because there is a delivery window from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm, our goal is to package food from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.
Gloves and masks will be provided. We are working on logistics to make sure person to person contact is very limited. Families will remain in their cars to fill out paperwork that is required by the Food Bank. Food will be placed in the trunk and they will be on their way!
We appreciate your support as we seek to lighten the burden of food insecurity in our city during these unprecedented times.
