They look like farmers’ markets, but they’re free. They function like food pantries, but they’re open to the whole community.
After-school “markets” let parents pick up food while they’re picking up their kids. Maybe a few eggs, maybe groceries for the week. And, while they’re at it, they can chat with other parents or catch up with their kids’ teachers.
These school markets are collaborations between Food For Free and the schools where they are held. Most are open once a month, on days determined by the school.
If you are a parent at one of these schools and want to participate, please contact your school’s Family Liaison.
