Hubbard Middle School to begin food pantry for Husky students and families

September 14, 2017


Hubbard Middle School administrators and staff have challenged themselves to “stretch out to better meet the needs of students and families in Husky nation,” Principal Kevin Blain said. Therefore, plans are underway to begin the school’s first Family Food Pantry.


“The need has been there for some time now,” Mr. Blain said. “So over the summer, we met with staff and decided now is the time to make it happen.” To put the plan in action, Hubbard teachers and PTA used Mr. Blain’s birthday as the first official opportunity to begin collecting food items. Teachers brought in nonperishable items and stacked them all on Mr. Blain’s desk to surprise him.


“Although our plan was a little spur of the moment yesterday, we spread the word to our Hubbard family and the cans came pouring in,” Beth Davis, Hubbard counselor, said. “We ended up with over 150 different food items for Mr. Blain’s birthday and for our food pantry.   He was very happy and surprised to find all the donations stacked neatly on his desk when he arrived to school.”


Details of how the food pantry will operate are still being ironed out, but Mr. Blain said the main focus will be to come up with a system that best serves the students and their families in a discreet and effective manner.


Hubbard plans to have the food pantry operational by the beginning of October.
