GLEANERS FOOD BANK
Ronald Brown Academy partners with Gleaners Community Food Bank to end child hunger one school at a time. Food is distributed year-round, including summer months when the risk of hunger is at its greatest. Gleaners Partners delivers food bags to Ronald Brown monthly and students are able to take a bag of food home at the end of the day on the delivery date. The bags may include
- shelf stable milk
- canned protein
- canned fruit
- canned vegetables
- whole grain cereal or crackers
Bags are filled with nutritious food for children who rely on free or reduced priced meals during the week.
New at Ronald Brown this year is our FoodCorps Service Member, Erin Brenner. FoodCorps is a National Program with Service Members in over 200 schools in the US and 6 school in the DPSC District. Ms. Brenner will be working together with the school community to connect our students to healthy food in school. She will be teaching hands-on lessons, providing support and taste tests in the cafeteria, and working to beautify and improve our garden space.
