Students at TCHS are welcome to select non-perishable food, paper products, and personal care items from the school food pantry for use at home. The pantry is open during lunch and after school.
Traverse City High School's food pantry was created by students from TCHS' mentor group in 2008. The pantry is supported by generous donations from the community and through the efforts of dedicated students who fundraise and shop to stock the pantry.
Sample items found in the food pantry:
- Non-perishable meals (ready to heat & eat)
- Pasta & Pasta Sauce
- Pancake Mix
- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Baby food, diapers, & wipes
- Paper Products
- Personal Care Items
Donations are accepted and appreciated. Donations may be dropped off Monday - Friday from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM at the high school main office, 3962 Three Mile Road North. Please contact Mary Preston at 231.933.5874 for more information.
