Food for thought

As we head into the season of giving, Durango School District 9-R has reopened its food pantry after a hiatus. The pantry, which is located in the DHS Health Services Center, will be open from 9 a.m. – 12 noon on Saturdays. The goal of the food pantry is to support local families and students by supplementing their weekly food supply.

The food pantry is also in need of donations of nonperishable food, including canned goods such as refried beans; pasta sauce; crackers; snack items; jelly and Nutella; breakfast items; and instant items. Food donations can be dropped off at the District Office, 201 E. 12th St., or EXIT Realty Home & Ranch, 1032 Main Ave.
