New Food Pantry to Serve Merrimack Valley Students

In a closet at the Merrimack Valley Learning Center, teachers used to stock food items for students to bring home to their parents.

The makeshift pantry was an acknowledgment from staff that several students and their families were living with food insecurity.

Through a partnership with New Hampshire Food Bank, the pantry has become official, offering fresh and non-perishable items for students and families of both Merrimack Valley Learning Center, and CSI Charter School.
