The West High supply is running its annual food drive during November in order to provide West families and students with food for the holidays. “We host food drives to help maintain the supplies we provide for the students and staff at our school. It also promotes awareness about hunger and the need within our school community,” said Omega Dancel, para educator and West High Supply staff volunteer.

The West High Supply is West High’s own food pantry that has been open since 2017 and is run by West High staff volunteers. West High supply not only provides food, it also provides other items such as school supplies, basic hygiene items, winter clothes, shoes, prom dresses, graduation gowns and healthy snacks. They also help provide referrals for transportation, housing and food assistance. 

 

 

 

 

 

With our current situation of inflation and uncertainties, many families are struggling. By providing a free and healthy meal during the holidays it helps families alleviate stress during the holidays.”
