Lynn Road Lions Delicious Deli

  • What is the Lynn Road Lions Delicious Deli? 

     

    The Lynn Road Lions Delicious Deli is a School based Food pantry. School based food pantries are located on the grounds of the school and are intended to serve students and their families at a safe and easy-to-access point in their communities. They are designed to help individuals or families subsidize their food supply with additional supplies thereby decreasing food insecurity in our community.  School pantries provide a welcoming and convenient space for students and their families who may be experiencing food insecurity to access nutritious food. Lynn Road Food Pantry is a judgment-free zone. A student can grab a snack during the school day. Additionally, families can come in and choose from a balanced selection of shelf-stable foods, fresh produce, and even meats as well as toiletries and other necessary household goods
