The Pride Pantry currently distributes on a consistent basis roughly 200 back pack bags of food per school year, with the need rising.
The Food Pantry also helps other individual students on a walk-in basis.
Who We Are
LMHS is happy to announce we have a High School Food Pantry called “Pride Pantry” to help our students in temporary need. It is supported entirely by donations!
Groceries may be dropped off to the 9/10 Office (Door 3 on the North side of Linn-Mar).
A “wish list” for the Pride Pantry is BELOW.
What We Do
The Pride Food Pantry continually meets students’ needs as they arise. Some needs are temporary, others are on-going. This year we have begun providing a food bag with a few food items for 11 students given every two-weeks! All of it is done in a discrete manner. The number of needed bags continues to rise. LMHS staff and students want to thank you for helping to keep LMHS Pride Food Pantry stocked and ready to help our students in need!
