The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism at Erasmus High School and Stop & Shop today held a ribbon cutting of the school’s new food pantry. The pantry, which will serve over 300 students from 9th-12th grade, is being supported by a $7,500 gift card donation from Stop & Shop that will enable the school to purchase the specific food items and other essential products that the students and their families need.

The Stop & Shop School Food Pantry Program was established to help limit barriers impacting students’ ability to succeed in the classroom by making sure that they have consistent access to food. Stop & Shop supports local schools’ existing food pantries or helps them establish a new one by providing gift card donations to help stock their shelves.
