Everyone loves ice cream, but no one wants to see a child hungry.
Owen J. School District administration and staff helped along with area officials and community leaders at a Celebrity Scoop Event held at the Coventry Ice Cream Parlor at Laurelocks to support the the Coventry Food Pantry Weekend Backpack Food program!
Ice cream was served to a nice, steady crowd with so many folks dropping off food and backpack supplies. Last school year the food pantry spent approximately $10.00 per child/ $320 or more in food costs each week for almost every week of the school year. The food was supplied by a county grant that is being cut by 50% this year.
