GREATER PARK HILL FOOD BANK

GPHC will be continuing the weekend food program this school year, in an effort to reduce food insecurity for students and provide additional nutritional support to help them be successful at school. The program provides a bag of food consisting of two breakfasts, two snacks, and at least two lunch items, including a fruit and a vegetable. Bags will be delivered to Park Hill Elementary on Tuesdays for distribution to children on Tuesdays at the end of the school day.

We still have a few volunteer spots open, so please click on the link below to help out!

**Go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040a4dabab2da75-park1 to volunteer to help ensure food bags get delivered to the school so our kids can take them home!
