Food For Schools Sponsors

With the new school year upon us, PORCH Chapel Hill-Carrboro would like to thank our Food for Schools (FFS) sponsors for the 19 public schools and the pre-kindergarten program in our school district. With the support of these local businesses, we are able to provide a generous supply of healthy snacks for students needing additional nourishment to tide them over during the school day.

“Teachers and social workers often reach into their own pockets to offer snacks to hungry students,” explains FFS Coordinator Lynn Scattolini. “We are so fortunate here in Chapel Hill-Carrboro to have the backing of our generous business community to help defray that cost.”

  • Amy Guskiewicz, Fonville Morisey Realty
