#LetsDoTheWork: Certain Little Free Class Pantry

According to Feeding America, approximately 1 in 4 Faulkner County kids face food insecurity. At March’s monthly meeting, we collected donations for The Certain Little Free Class Pantry at Conway High School.

Crystal Certain was also our guest speaker for the month. She shared her experience helping students and how the pantry got started in her supply closet. The main pantry currently averages more than 300 visits a day with attendance spikes before Food Stamps disperse. There are also satellite pantries to assist students in other parts of the CHS campus.

Some students use the pantry because they forgot breakfast or hit a growth spurt, but those are the same kids who make it socially acceptable for the kids who wouldn’t eat otherwise to get what they need.

They always need donations of:
?Pop Tarts
❤️Pudding Cups
?Ladies Deodorant
❤️Body Wash
?Cereal Bars
❤️Cup Noodles
?Fruit Cups
❤️Pop Tarts
?Granola Bars

The Certain Little Free Class Pantry accepts donations at the front office of Conway High during normal school hours. Other ways to donate include sending a check made out to Conway High School with Class Pantry in the memo line or ordering from their Amazon Wishlist.
