Food Collection for Mort Elementary School's Food Pantry
For the month of May 2016 we collected non-perishable food items for Mort Elementary School's food pantry. Mort Elementary School is located in Hillsborough County, FL. Most of the students who attend the school live in poverty, and currently 99% of their students are on the free/reduced lunch program. In February 2016 the Straz Center held a fundraising event so that the school could build a food pantry (see video for details). Wings of Service families helped stock that pantry for the students. Non-Perishable food donations were made to Wings of Service during the month of May. Wings of Service families will delivered the food donations to the school contacts at the close of the collection. We also attended a feild trip to the University Area Community Development Center. We worked in the community garden, had a tour and nutrition talk.
