Regional Food Bank Brings “Food for Kids” School Pantry Program to Dove
DOVE-OKC and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma have partnered to bring the "Food for Kids" school pantry program to Dove. This program provides Dove Science Academy with fully-stocked food pantry on the school grounds. The program provides middle and high school students with food for after school and on the weekends. The pantry is for Dove students only, and is not open to the public.
The pantry has a variety of items, including canned fruits and vegetables, soups, juice, pasta, granola bars, canned spaghetti, ravioli, and more! New items are ordered each month.
Once a student is signed up for the program through a Dove teacher, administrator, or counselor, that student may visit the pantry at school at any time. Students in the program are given the opportunity to select their food items privately at least once per week, usually on Fridays.
It is our goal at Dove to expand this program as much as possible! If you are interested in the Food for Kids program, please do not hesitate to contact your student’s teacher, or you may contact the coordinator directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405-541-8325.
