Gleaners/MVCSC Food Pantry

Gleaners Food Bank at Mt. Vernon High School!  

 

Mt. Vernon High School was originally one of five schools selected as a pilot program for Gleaners Food Bank to provide food services in the MVCSC community. The Pantry is a place where students/families in need can discreetly "shop" for free and pick up non-perishable food, personal hygiene, and household items. If you need to shop, please speak with your school counselor. Eligible families must live in the Mt. Vernon district school. No Voucher necessary

Mt. Vernon High School, Door #12
4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

 

The MVCSC/Gleaners Food Pantry will now be open in June & July 2020.

Please help us keep the Pantry open All Year Long! If you would like to donate any food or other items to our food pantry, please drop off all items in the high school Main Office. Donations will be accepted only during school hours at the High School Main Office.
