Food Pantry Donations

During this time of uncertainty, we are completely overwhelmed and humbled by the support of our community. Below is a list of SCPS schools that are in need of donations to re-stock their Food Pantries for students and their families. In addition, our Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools is also accepting donations for our Families in Need program, which assists our most-vulnerable and fragile students and families.  Those wishing to assist in that area can visit  The Foundation for SCPS's COVID-19 Page.

Individuals and Organizations can drop-off donations to each school's Front Office but please call the school to schedule a drop off at least 24 hours in advance.
