FOOD FOR FRIENDS
Food For Friends is a community service program run by the PTO. This program supplies our own FHE families, and our sponsored CCSD elementary school, with balanced meals for the weekend (whom may not otherwise have access). The PTO arranges for FHE students to complete bimonthly fulfillments. They pack grocery bags with a variety of food items that get sent home to families in need. This helps our students gain awareness of food insecurities, allows them to engage in community service projects, and leaves them feeling good about the difference they've made in their community
If you feel your family could benefit from this program, please us the QR code to fill out the survey. A bag is discretely placed in your child's backpack on Fridays (or the last school day of the week) for them to take home.

We Our Community
The entire Grandview Boys Basketball program rallied to pack Fox Hollow's Food for Friends pantry (as their annual community service project). Each team collected items from the list, and the Varsity team even made an event of it by going shopping together. A few of the players delivered and organized the food into the closet so it’s ready for the next fulfillment date. (2023/2024 SY)
Fox Hollow's 5th Grade Girl Sout Troop donated 30 boxes as part of the "Hometown Heroes" campaign. They decided this would be a fun treat for families who might not otherwise get to participate in the Girl Scout cookies season (2022/2023 SY)
In December 2022, our neighboring elementary school, Rolling Hills, held a food drive to help restock the FHE food pantry. Rolling Hills Elementary PTCO dropped off over 1,000 nonperishable goods.

Fox Hollow's Girl Scout Kindergarten Troop 4156 (2022/23 SY) collected 40 pairs of gloves to wrap and add to Food for Friends bags. They did this to earn their caring and considerate pedal badge. This was a part of learning about being caring for our community.
During the 2021/2022 school year, one of our grandparents MADE over 100 masks to include in the Food For Friends bags.
Fox Hollow's 2nd grade Troop 7235, (2021/22 SY) went Christmas Caroling and collected cans to donate to Food For Friends. They delivered the cans and helped pack the bags.
In December 2021, Mrs. Dillon’s 4th grade class worked to fill 40 bags for Village East and the Food for Friends Program. In addition to the bags, Mrs. Dillon personally donated 55 wrapped children’s books. We saved some for our FHE kiddos and gave the rest to Village East to give out during the holidays. Thank you,
Mrs. Dillion, for your generosity!
