Cans clatter, bags flutter and a determined look sits on everyone’s face. Students weave between each other and the pantry shelves while rushing to fill their bags to sort food. Bags rip open as tape and wrappers litter the ground. Volunteers quickly grab another bag of cans and repeat the same cycle.

ESL teacher Bailey Moreno noticed some of her students continually asked for food every day. Moreno would supply extra snacks for her students, but eventually the snacks outgrew the demand of hungry students.

“[That’s] when we realized that more kids might be needing food as well, so we decided to just open up a food pantry,” Moreno said.

For two years now, the GrubHub food pantry has been serving students who don’t have access to food at home. The seven students who form the club meet weekly to pack bags for the weekend with items they collect through donations.

“GrubHub is a place where we can help our student body, the ones in need,” junior Parh Hniang said. “[It’s just] a small thing we can do to help those with big problems or big needs.”

The club proudly helps about 30 kids a week and even though most of the time they are the same kids, there will be a new student to serve every once in awhile. In order for students to receive food, they must sign up by using a QR code and pick up the food after school to take home.

“I feel great knowing I’m helping my fellow peers,” freshman Halana Stroud said. “[I] also feel determined to continue helping those in need.”

Although there are no strict requirements to be in the club, Moreno expects the members to be hard workers genuinely interested in service.

“[As] long as you’re a good person and you keep your grades up, you’re good,” Moreno said.

In GrubHub, the goal is to help students be able to better focus in class, which they can’t do if they are hungry. The members want students to not have to worry about when their next meals will be.

“I love being able to see students helping their peers in need,” Moreno said. “[Our members] work so hard and they are doing it for their classmates. There is a lot of negativity in the world, so I love that Harmon gets to spread some positivity.”
