For the final time this school year, the Mobile Food Pantry returned to Isaac E. Young Middle School recently – and numerous families again benefitted from this joint sponsorship by the City School District of New Rochelle’s Pupil Personnel Services Department and Feeding Westchester.
Overall, 6,400 pounds of food were distributed to 126 guests, feeding a total of 523 people based on the number of family members reported by the visitors. This initiative has been crucial to local families; a healthy, consistent diet can help students in school and with their quality of life. Thank you to all who have been instrumental in assisting our community, including the partner organizations that attended: the New Rochelle Public Library, Project Hope, and Affinity Healthcare. In the first photo, Superintendent Jonathan Raymond, a frequent attendee at the pantries this school year, again showed his support by assisting volunteer teams serving the community.
