The Families Helping Families Food Pantry is a Woodin Elementary PTA run Food Bank that depends upon the generous donations of the families at Woodin Elementary School. Any and all donations are appreciated, and your generosity is respected and cherished by every family that utilizes this resource. With your help, we strive to make sure every child and their family has the food and toiletries that they need.

The food pantry also supplies our Totes to Go program with the food needed to fill the backpacks that are sent home with children over the weekends to ensure that their families have the resources that they might not otherwise have.

We are a community, and when we help each other, we build a stronger brighter future for everyone.
