Thanks to the assistance of a local church and National Honor Society, the Lee’s Summit North High School Feed-the-Need food pantry is well-stocked again. In early December, the pantry’s shelves were nearly bare.

Woods Chapel United Methodist Church as well as the school’s National Honor Society members stepped up to provide food items so that the pantry now has a surplus of student food kits available for distribution.

The LSNHS Feed-the-Need pantry provides breakfast and snack items whenever students need something to eat throughout the school day. In addition, the pantry sends backpacks of food home with students from families in financial need on Fridays. During longer breaks from school, the students receive additional food.
