Food Pantries

The Food Pantry Program is here to serve the Colonial Community which includes staff members, students and their families.  Individuals and families who are eligible for the food pantry also qualify or are enrolled in SNAP (aka food stamps), WIC, TANF or experiencing financial hardship.

Colonial School District families that have children in our district schools, who are in need of food assistance or would like information about specific services available, please contact the corresponding school pantry coordinator listed below. Families may select 30 pounds of food and up to 5 pounds of other household products based on their household’s needs each visit.
