DASD Food Pantry
Supporting homeless and housing insecure students and families since October 2022
The Downingtown Area School District food pantry provides eligible students and families with perishable and non-perishable food items, as well as personal care and hygiene essentials, and school supplies.
Using funds received through a state grant to support homeless students, the DASD food pantry opened in October 2022 at Downingtown Middle School (115 Rock Raymond Road, Downingtown). It is stocked with items purchased with grant funds and donated by members of the community.
If you would like to learn more or make a contribution to the pantry, please contact Student Services Supervisor Jamie Nunery or Home & School Visitor Cierra Martinez.
