Food Pantry

  • We maintain a food pantry here at Apex High School to assist our families in times of need. The pantry relies on donations from the community. If you are able, please take a look at the list and donate. Our needs are ongoing as we send backpacks home weekly with students as needed -- sometimes this number reaches 20 bags.  

    Please keep in mind that the backpacks are average size, so avoid Family-Sized, Giant-Sized, Costco-Sized packages. 

    Ongoing Needs: (Shelf-stable foods that can be easily transported in a backpack by a student)

    -  Grocery store gift cards (for our volunteer coordinators to shop)
    -  Cereal (individual or "regular" sized boxes -- not family or giant, please)
    -  Oatmeal and other breakfast items (Poptarts, breakfast bars, etc)
    -  Pasta (all kinds, preferably one pound size)
    -  Pasta Sauce (canned if possible, NO tomato sauce please)
    -  Macaroni & Cheese
    -  Canned Vegetables, Fruits (fruit cups too)

    -  Canned Meats (Chicken, Tuna)
    -  Canned Ravioli, Soup
    -  Individual Snacks (chips, cheez-its, fruit snacks, etc. Consider what your kids munch on!) 
    -  Granola Bars
