School helps stock food pantry in Omaha

Collecting different items each day of the week – such as canned meats and beans on Mondays and fruits, vegetables, soups and pastas on Tuesdays – students and others at St. Wenceslaus School in Omaha gathered enough food from Oct. 9 to Nov. 6 to stock a Catholic Charities’ food pantry for about six months.

Every school day, eighth-graders from the Social Justice Club visited classrooms to gather and weigh donations, and 31 of the students helped deliver the 27,743 pounds of food to the St. Martin de Porres food pantry at Catholic Charities’ Christ Child North Center in Omaha.

Another part of the schools’ 19th annual food drive for the pantry – an Oct. 27 Diaper Derby brought in more than 4,300 diapers.
