El Colegio’s Food Delivery
El Colegio will continue to provide weekly non perishable food bag drop offs on Friday’s. Families must make the school aware by Wednesday at 5pm each week if they want to be included on Friday’s drop off route.
- Mondays and Tuesdays: Staff will call all students and families and check if there is a food need in the house.
- Wednesdays: Food need requests will be compiled and documented. Messages left on the school voicemail will be checked.
- Thursdays: El Colegio staff will finalize deliveries for the week and map out routes.
- Fridays: Bagged food will be dropped off to community members who requested it between 9am and 6pm.
This is made possible thanks to The Sheridan Story, as well as individual donors supporting our efforts to provide families with what they need during this time. We are grateful for all the continued support!
