Food Updates:

Food is available for all students who attend the Sanborn Regional School District. Free and reduced meal forms should still be completed because once we go back to "normal" those will be used to determine who is eligible to continue to receive meals. Everyone is eligible to receive the food, but the paperwork needs to be completed regardless of income level. Even if you have not been approved in the past, please consider applying again.
Please contact for additional information

 We are now able to provide food for families on weekends.  If you are a family who currently receives our regularly scheduled deliveries, you do not need to do anything to receive the additional food, it will be in your regular Friday meal pack.  

Finally, we would like to encourage anyone who has experienced a change in job  status to reach out to us for food support. The information is completely confidential and the approval process has changed during this time of a national emergency. 

Food Pantry Donations
You have been amazing!
Many of you have asked me to let you know if we have any needs. As of right now, we need the following:
Pancake mix (we have plenty of syrup)
Peanut butter
Crackers (snack crackers like Ritz or Saltines that have individual sleeves of crackers in the box)
Fruit (canned either snack or family size)
Oatmeal (we are looking for the boxes that have the individual packets)
Cake Mix 
We are hoping to send a cake mix home with each family to celebrate the end of the school year.
Food can be dropped off on MWF between 7 and 3 to the main office.
Thank you for all you have done to meet the needs of these students. It really does make a difference for their learning.
