Farnsworth Middle School is organizing a food drive for the FMS backpack program, to support FMS families with students who take part in the backpack program. This program provides families with additional food to assist them with establishing food security on the weekend and days when school is not in session.
The food drive will run from Monday, Nov. 15 to Tuesday, Nov. 23. Each grade level is asked to bring specific non-perishable items to complete meals. Please note these items will be distributed among multiple bags, so individual servings and/or packages are preferred.
- 6th Grade: pasta, noodles, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, ramen noodles, Spaghettios, muffin and baked good mixes
- 7th Grade: granola bars, cereal (full sized and individual boxes), oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, apple sauce, pancake mix
- 8th Grade: canned fruit, canned vegetables,rice, tuna, shelf-stable milk and juice boxes, pre-made microwavable meals
Snack items will also be accepted.
Students can bring donated items to their house office, reception area or cafeteria or sent to the building. You can also check out this Amazon wish-list purchase and ship items directly to school AMAZON WISH LIST.
We are hopeful that Farnsworth’s giving spirit will continue to support our local community & families in need!
