Cherokee Heights Middle School opened its food pantry in the Fall 2018. The pantry will be open Tuesdays 3-4:30 p.m . and Fridays 8:15-10:15 a.m.  for families and students to pick out fresh and non-perishable items. The pantry is staffed by Food for Thought volunteers. The Food to Home Program, where bags of food are delivered to families as identified by the social worker who can’t attend pantry due to limited transportation, started in the summer of 2019.
