On the morning of FCAT testing, student A.S. came into my office and asked, “Ms. Williams, my stomach is hurting; I didn’t have breakfast. Do you have food?” I responded, “Yes.” I opened the Love Pantry, took out a box of cereal, milk, fruit and juice, then served the student.
A.S. was so grateful for some food to eat before FACT testing he could not stop thanking us. In reality, he was thanking the Christian Service Center for providing the Love Pantry and helping us to stock it weekly.
A hungry child cannot focus and concentrate on academics in a classroom.
Thank you to the Christian Service Center for all that you do to support our families in crisis.
