K-8 students to receive free food boxes at registration

K-8 students to receive free food boxes at Baldwyn Schools' registration Monday

Baldwyn Schools has partnered with the Tupelo/Lee County Hunger Coalition, a division of United Way, and the Family Resource Center of Tupelo to provide free food boxes for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade.

Fourteen pallets of non-perishable food item boxes will be onsite at Baldwyn Schools' Back to School Registration on Monday, August 6 from 3-6 p.m. at the elementary and middle school campuses.

“We are very excited to take this opportunity to help provide and meet the needs of our students in this way. We appreciate the Lee County Hunger Coalition and United Way in their efforts to better our school district and community,” Superintendent Jason McKay said.

Students can pick up their free food boxes at BES when they complete registration and meet their assigned teacher in the classroom. BMS students can pick up free food boxes at a distribution table near the main office after completing registration.

The food donations are an effort through United Way, the Family Resource Center, and Baldwyn Schools to help provide for needy families and students within the community.
