A food pantry is being established for Roy High students. The pantry will be open every Thursday from 2:30 to 4:30 in the student advocate office. If Thursday is a holiday, the pantry will be open on Wednesday. Days and times will likely be adjusted in February as necessary.
The pantry isn’t just about giving the kids food. Recipes for common items will be available. If needed, long term food assistance can be identified.
Please donate to the pantry. Donations can be taken to the counselor’s office or the drop off boxes in the commons and library.
