Davis County High School lends helping hand to community
BLOOMFIELD, Iowa (KYOU) -On the second Wednesday of each month, Davis County High School has made it its mission to host a monthly-food pantry open to families with children 18 and under. The pantry consists of canned foods, pasta, frozen goods, and fruits and veggies with new items each month for families with children.
Due to Covid, the event is currently available via drive-thru to pick up groceries for families. And, the staff is able to put the groceries right in the trunk of your car.
Davis County sophomore Luke Miller says the school has many resources to help students and knew they needed to broaden their reach.
He says “We are hosting this because we know during these hard times people have lost jobs and stuff. We know people are in need. And, we get free food from the Iowa Food Bank, and we were like ‘Hey we can put this to use because as a school you can get this.’”
Davis County High School has many other efforts beyond the food drive at the school to make sure kids are taken care of during the pandemic.
There is no pre-registration required and families in need can just pull-up to the next drive in November.
