Hope Food Pantry Austin is a partner agency with Central Texas Food Bank. They collaborate with community partners to help alleviate hunger in the Austin community.  HSS-Austin would like to help in this initiative by hosting a Thankful Tigers Food Drive – November 1st – 18th.

We want to encourage our students to be helpful and to serve others that are in need. Our students will take part in their classrooms by sorting and counting their homeroom contributions and having meaningful conversations about the importance of our service to the community.  We appreciate your support in this endeavor by speaking to your student at home and work together as a family to participate.

Items requested:  shelf stable items like breakfast cereal, pancake or muffin mixes, cartons of shelf stable milk, cans of fruits or vegetables:  corn, green beans, peas etc., diced or whole tomatoes, fruit, soup, chili, ravioli, peanut butter (smaller than 18 oz), canned meats (tuna, chicken or salmon), pasta, bags of rice and beans, granola/protein bars, condiments (ketchup, mayo, mustard, salt/pepper).

Please use the following guidelines before sending your food items to school:

  • NO opened, dusty, old/dented containers
  • NO glass products
  • NO EXPIRED ITEMS or PACKAGES OVER 2 POUNDS
  • Please donate stable boxes or plastic totes to hold large food items during our food drive
