Student Council

Field Trip to the Milpitas Food Pantry

This year's Student Council went on a field trip to the Milpitas Food Pantry to learn how the Pantry works and what Ms. Kollander and her team does with the donations. Council learned that the Pantry does not give expired food to their clients. It's actually the expired food passed along to other facilities which will use the food to feed pigs and another facility to recycle the cans. Ms. Kollander explained that the Pantry also takes more than canned food. It takes toiletries, cleaning supplies, diapers, clothes, and more to help their clients. The Pantry also gives out ready to eat food for their homeless clients.
