Food Pantry Fridays

The elementary communities in Sudbury are incredibly gracious contributors that allow the Sudbury Food Pantry to serve its mission of providing for families facing food insecurity. We typically provide 45% of the Food Pantry’s collections aside other local businesses.  Without our continued support, the Sudbury Food Pantry would not be able to meet the needs of those within our community.  In July 2018 alone, 5,032 individuals benefited from the generosity of the Sudbury Food Pantry and all its contributors.  Of those individuals, 1,677 were children under the age of 18.

More information about the Sudbury Food Pantry can be found at http://sudburyfoodpantry.org/about/.

Each month Loring has one Friday when students, staff and administrators donate items for classroom collections. Students in 4th and 5th grades gather, count, sort, and pack donations in the morning, and then in the afternoon carry the boxed donations to cars for delivery to the food pantry.

Parent/Guardian/Grandparent volunteers are always appreciated to make collection day run efficiently. Find out more about volunteering here.  If you have any questions, please contact Laura Porter.
