Due to Covid19 restrictions, the food donations will be delivered through drive-through, drop-off in front of the GBC Solarium on Circle Drive. The food donations will then be delivered to the Head Start of NE Nevada and Communities in Schools food pantries.

Head Start and Early Head Start programs promote school readiness for economically disadvantaged children by enhancing their social and cognitive development through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services. Head Start of NE Nevada serves 145 children from birth through age five and their families. Forty-seven of the children currently enrolled are homeless.

Communities in School's mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Food donations will help CIS implement innovative ways to fast-track food resources for our communities' most vulnerable children by providing snack breakfasts and weekend backpacks filled with food.
