Food insecurity is a bigger issue than we originally believed. The Pirate Pantry offers a way for us to get food directly to our families in need.
You can help by donating food or money to help our families.

Pirate Pantry is a bridge program to help families with a temporary need and provide direction if they need a more permanent solution. Five meals (dinner) a week will be provided for no more than three weeks to any one family. If there is a need beyond three weeks, support will be provided to help them find a more permanent solution.
Social Workers and engagement staff will identify families and refer them to the Food Service Director, who will contact the families and make arrangements for food to be picked up.
The Food Service Director determines the menu of food available including the types, quantities and storage of the food.
Sample approved food menu:
Mac and cheese
