In the 2018-19 school year, the Husky Food Access Network distributed over 1800 pounds of food to our campus community. We also provided students with meal passes, brown bag lunches, emergency meal packets and hosted meal pack giveaways. We are grateful for the generosity of the community so that assistance can be provided where it’s needed.
