During long holidays many students and their families experience food insecurity. SITD has generously helped to keep the food closet at Sierra High stocked with food. In past years, the S-Club, which is a high school leadership club, has maintained the food closet. Since COVID, SITD has not sponsored a S-Club at Sierra High School (SHS).
When asked, Alicia Gebel, SHS counsellor, noted the food closet was almost empty. Usually, we ask the members to bring staples to a business meeting and then share it with the school. This year the board decided to request $200 from the club to buy the items suggested and needed.
Here is a picture of a student and Alicia in front of the donated food at SHS. Items requested were packaged pasta dinners, energy bars, soups, rice dinners, and canned tuna.
