Huge Community Food Donation to Help Feed Students in Need

Students pose with food donationIt was all hands on deck as high school students gathered to organize and package $30,000 of donated food to help feed fellow students in need. The food was sorted and then delivered to 63 Principal’s Pantries in Jordan School District schools. Every school has a Principal’s Pantry thanks to the generosity of local business, community and individual donations to the Jordan Education Foundation. The Principal’s Pantries are essential in our schools to help students and their families who may need just a little extra help, especially during the pandemic.

Thanks to our community partners for their generosity and student volunteers who helped organize the food for delivery!
