Food Drive : Nov 23 – Dec 4

We will be running a Food Drive at Horace Mann from November 23 – Dec 4.
Hunger & food insecurity is a daily reality for many Newton & Massachusetts families. We are partnering with The Center Street Food Pantry to help those in need.
Please see more detailed information posted around the school but here are a few facts about the food situation in Massachusetts
  • 11.4% of all households in Massachusetts, or 700,000 people are struggling with food insecurity
  • Food insecurity is up nearly 40% from before the recession began and an almost 80% increase from the start of the last decade
  • 16.5% of Massachusetts children live in food insecure households

On November 23rd a grocery bag will be sent home with your child. A flyer attached to the bag will ask for a SUGGESTED food donation. We hope that this will make it easier for you but if you want to contribute something else/more please feel free. There are no limits !
