What is Pantry for Pride?
Merakey serves over 500 students with autism and special needs. When a child comes to school hungry, absorbing information is difficult and the teacher’s job becomes impossible.
Merakey teachers and staff were supplementing students’ meals with their own money, so Pantry for Pride was started to fund breakfast and lunches for students who would otherwise go hungry. We believe that each student should have full stomachs and an equal opportunity to learn and grow.
