We have an Urban Gleaners food delivery every Friday morning at 9:30 by the gym doors. In addition, we have opened a FREE food pantry for all school families in the portable at the back of the school every Monday From 3:45 pm to 5:15 pm, also during the summer(through August 31st) from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm. Recipients will receive between a 3-5 days’ supply of healthy groceries, including fruits and vegetables, meat, eggs, and pantry staples such as milk, rice, pasta and canned foods each week at this pantry. All households that have a Cherry Park student may receive food each week, regardless of income level, citizenship status, or other services that you may be accessing. You may park at the back of the school on 106th for easy access. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please call our office at 503 256 6501.
