Student Activities Director John Williams, along with many other volunteers, coordinates efforts each week to send meals home with students. Clubs, teams, departments, students, and teachers volunteer to sponsor the Beach Bag Project throughout the year. They raise either money or collect packaged food donations, like individually wrapped snacks, dry milk, canned goods, oatmeal, ramen noodles.

“With $170, I can purchase a two-meal bag for $3.40 for every student at the school who qualifies. We produce 50 bags a week, all 56 weeks of the year,” said Williams.

This program provides food for those cannot afford to eat over the weekend when they can’t access free school lunch or breakfast.

“Sometimes school food is the only food kids are getting at home,” said Williams.

Contact Williams in the student activities room if interested in sponsoring a week for the year. Spots are still open.
