Midland Freshman HS, West Texas Food Bank team up for Pup Pantry

Midland High Pub Pantry

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Midland Freshman High School is teaming up with the West Texas Food Bank once again for their Pup Pantry.

It's a pantry filled with necessities like food and water.

“A lot of our students here at Midland freshman fall under the sub-population of the socio-economically disadvantaged. So, we knew there is a need for it, we also knew a lot of our kids qualify for free and reduced lunch, so once again there was a need for it,” said Kristi Leeper, instructional specialist at Midland Freshman High School.

The Pup Pantry is known as a closed pantry, but students will not need to qualify or bring proof of income. They will only need to bring a bag for groceries.

“I can’t believe they have such variety, because we have a snack for their kids, because we know that growing kids eat a ton of snacks, so we have a snack for their kids and also I have ground meat, I have protein. We will have fresh bread and produce before too long,” Leeper said.

To make an appointment simply call the front office.
