Hi Longfellow Community,

Starting this Friday (September 30th) you must bring your FOOD BANK CARD to receive food from the pantry.  If you do not bring your card, you will not receive your food for the week.  Also, you must be part of the Longfellow Community to participate in the food bank.  Only one card will be distributed per family even if you have multiple children at Longfellow.

Thank you,

Brenda Garcia

Outside of having a great Food Bank program in which we provide food to over 135 families each week, we also have our AM Snack Program for each classroom.

The purpose of this program is to provide a healthy snack to each student during recess time.

Every Friday, teachers bring their classroom bins to the cafeteria and volunteers distribute four days worth of snack so that all our 614 students get a least one snack a day for free. It is then delivered to each classroom.

If the child does not choose to eat there snack during recess teacher are ask to send the snack with the child afterschool. If you have any questions please feel free to ask our AM Snack coordinator via email at [email protected] or just leave a note at the office.

Food Bank Procedure

We are very proud of our Food Bank program. Every Friday (with the exception of days where there is NO school /holidays). Here are some of the procedures:

1.  Make sure you fill out a form for the Food Bank which can be obtained in the office.

2.  On Friday mornings we gather in front of the school form a line and receive a number.

2.  Then proceed and show your Food Bank Card and receive our food. 

At this moment we serve over 135 families, and hope to continue doing so. I would like to highlight that this program is run by volunteers.  So please be considerate towards them. You can join this program by simply asking for a form in the office and return it to the office.  They will forward them to me. If your form is not received by Wednesday afternoon you will have to wait to receive you card the fallowing week. Note that with out a Food Bank Card you wont be able to get your food.
