Children in School Bus

Wellness and Food Assistance Programs

Hunger prevention and basic hygiene needs are vital to proper growth and development of children. 20% - 25% of the children living in Keller and Northwest ISD are living below the poverty line. The Community Storehouse has been able to help address these concerns with amazing donations and support from members of our community.

Volunteers Packing Food

PANTRY & FOOD ASSISTANCE

Food insecurity affects 20% of the children in Keller ISD and 25% in Northwest ISD. 2,536 children were served through our monthly food assistance in 2018 alone.

Case managers determine eligibility based on documentation provided by the applicant. Food pantry vouchers are typically issued for 1-3 months of food assistance. Emergency food boxes are available to anyone requesting food. No one requesting food is turned away.

Kid Eating Snack

WEEKEND SNACK PACKS

In an effort to close the gap between opportunity and achievement for children in our community, the Community Storehouse Snack Pack Program provides these children with bags filled with kid-friendly nutritious foods at their school site. The snack packs are assembled by volunteers at the Community Storehouse Nutritional Center and delivered to school partners each week. The school staff identifies students suffering from weekend food insecurity and the Community Storehouse Snack Packs are put into their backpacks each Friday. Over 60,000 Snack Packs were provided to children in 2020 alone.

Community Service

DIGNITY CLOSET

Our goal is to further close the gap between opportunity and achievement for our students through providing basic hygiene products to Title I schools in KISD, CISD, NISD, AISD. These schools have the highest percentage of students on the free or reduced lunch program.

Toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, combs, soap, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products will be stocked for distribution to students as needed per the school counselor, nursing, and teaching staff.

Playing with Baby

BABY DIGNITY

The Community Storehouse Baby Dignity Closet Program delivers baby items (diapers, wipes, baby wash, seasonal clothing, etc.) as needed, to the Pregnancy Related Services Program Coordinators to distribute to low-income teen parents both during the school year and for the summer break.

"Community Storehouse has filled a huge gap in the districts education program for Teen Parents. Helping with the basic needs of my students' babies reduces my students' stress & allows them to focus more on their studies..." - Cynthia Elliott, Pregnancy & Parenting Education Program Coordinator NISD
