TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A local middle school helped provide meals to those in need Monday. Every second Monday of the month, staff at Sarah Scott Middle School team up with Terre Haute Catholic Charities to provide food boxes to the community.
The effort started in response to the struggles posed by the pandemic, but since Mondays are remote learning days for Vigo County middle and high schools, it’s also a chance for students and staff to stay connected.
School social worker Nichelle Campbell-Miller said, “Our community definitely struggles with food insecurities, so we want to make sure that our students specifically get the food and the nourishment that they need because a hungry kid can’t learn. And so we want to make sure that we definitely meet that need for our students.”
Each grab-and-go meal kit includes breakfast and lunch.
