    Auburn Pantry Project

    (A Healthy Choices Grant)Pantry

    In February 2017 The Auburn Public Schools Foundation launched the Pantry Project, designed to help the district's elementary, middle, and high schools establish and maintain an on-hand supply of food and hygiene products.  As part of this grant, schools may apply for periodic funding from APSF to cover the cost of pantry supplies including:

    • Food (Fresh or packaged) to supplement Food to Go, mid-morning snacks, before or after school activities, or other needs;
    • Hygiene items (toothpaste and brushes, shampoo and conditioner, soap and wipes, deodorant, feminine hygiene products, etc.;
    • (Under) clothing;
    • Other basic related supplies.
    Funding for this project is provided by Hop Jack's restaurant in Lakeland Hills as part of its Kids Feeding Kids campaign.
     
    Schools may apply for this grant using this simple application form.  All applications will be reviewed by the Executive Director and within 2 weeks of submission.  Awards should range from $250-$500 per request, generally with more funding provided for the initial set-up of pantry supplies.
