White Bear Food Shelf opens pantries at 5 local schools - January 2017
The White Bear Lake Area Educational Foundation (WBLAEF) has granted $6,000 to the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf for its newly established school pantry pilot program.
This fall, the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf (WBAEFS) established on-site food pantries at five schools in the White Bear Lake Area School District. The food for the school pantries is provided by the food shelf and stocked by students in the Transitions work program. The schools include: Sunrise Middle School, the Area Learning Center, Transitions, and North and South High School campuses.
In 2013, the WBAEFS launched a partnership with White Bear Lake Area Schools to provide weekend KID packs for children who might otherwise go hungry over the weekend when food is scarce.
