A food drive to "pack the pantry" at Westbrook High School begins Monday December 5 and continues until Christmas Break - December 22 last day to drop off.
60% of WHS kids qualify for free or reduced price lunches.  When they are not in school, providing extra meals can be a big problem in many households, especially around the holidays.  You can help by bringing requested items to the WHS Main Office during school hours or you can send a donation to The Locker Project (http://mainelockerproject.org/) .  
The Locker Project, in partnership with the Good Shepherd Food Bank, helps ensure food security for all Maine children through local schools. The Locker Project works with schools to create programs for providing students with healthy class-time snacks and take-home food for the times they are most likely to experience hunger.
Non-perishable items most requested and not often available from Good Sheppard include single serve items like:
  • Packages of crackers or cookies (peanut butter, cheese, Oreos, choc chip, etc)
  • Cup of Soup/Soup for One/Campbells Single Serve
  • Granola Bars/Cereal Bars
  • Pop Tarts
  • Fruit Roll Ups
  • Raisins/Craisins
  • Mac n Cheese
  • Single microwaveable meals of all types
Other items needed include:
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned goods
  • Boxed Cereal
Thank you for your generosity this Christmas.
