Healthy Children Pantries Help Parents Make Ends Meet
It’s 8:00 a.m. and children romp on the playground outside of Starr King Elementary, a public school nestled on top of Potrero Hill in San Francisco. The morning scene of laughter and games is typical of any schoolyard, but inside something very special is happening — their parents are choosing groceries from the school’s Healthy Children Pantry.
“This pantry is a blessing... and allows me to feed my girls so they can be healthy and happy. I'm very thankful for that."
