Sometimes it just takes knowing there is a need. After a community meeting last Thursday held at Landmark High, Monica Hullinger, a Nebo District Social Worker who oversees the Pantry at Landmark High School, took David Smith and Carol Barker on a tour of the Pantry. Mr. Smith is the Food Bank Director at Community Action Services and Food Bank. Mrs. Barker is the Community Strategies Director.
The bare shelves of the pantry were very troubling, but Dave Smith knew CASFB would be able to help. Mrs. Hullinger stated she has “had a decline in the contributions that have come to the pantry, but the needs of the students accessing the pantry are only increasing.”
Together Mrs. Hullinger and Mr. Smith are working on a plan to re-stock the Nebo Pantry at Landmark High, and to add to the backpacks that they also disperse. Deliveries there will begin within the next week.
