I'M A STUDENT AT NORTH. IF I COME TO THE PANTRY, WILL OTHER KIDS SEE ME?
Generally, no. We make it a point to not allow student volunteers in the pantry to help reduce this chance. If you prefer, we can arrange to get you into the pantry privately, at a different time. Please contact Mrs. Cruser if you are a North student and would like to access the pantry. Email
HOW DO YOU DETERMINE HOW MANY ITEMS EACH FAMILY GETS WHEN THEY VISIT THE PANTRY?
The pantry uses a point system. Depending on the number of people in your household, you will get a set amount of points. Items in the pantry are worth a certain number of points (most one point each), and you can shop accordingly.
CAN I VOLUNTEER TO HELP IN THE PANTRY?
We allow adults to volunteer with the pantry on an as-needed basis. We also have numerous events scheduled throughout the year in which we will need several volunteers. If you are interested, visit our volunteer page to contact us.
