La Crosse Logan High School opens food pantry
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Another school in the area is hoping to help the hungry here at home.
Logan High School recently opened ‘The Logan Table,’ a pantry set up for students and families who may have trouble having enough food at home.
The pantry is maintained by staff members at Logan and is stocked with items provided by the Hunger Task Force.
They held a curbside event outside the high school Thursday to make sure everyone had enough food to last through the upcoming spring break.
Teachers say about 48% of students at Logan qualify for free or reduced cost meals at the school and they didn’t want to see anyone go hungry.
“We worried that ‘how can you focus on learning when you don’t have food at home to eat?’ So we started the pantry at school so that the students could access it, because often you have to be 18 years old or you have to have a car to get to a food pantry,” said Logan H.S. Special Education Teacher Tricia Gibbons.
If you’d like to help, the Logan Pantry does take donations, but also recommends donating non-perishable items to the Hunger Task Force.
