To provide food on weekends to school children in the Sierra Vista and surrounding area who are economically disadvantaged in order to enrich their learning environment.
To play a part in improving the academic performance and self esteem of the children we serve by relieving weekend hunger.
Peach’s Pantry, Inc. was created to supply economically disadvantaged children in public schools in the Sierra Vista, AZ area with food for the weekend. Many children are dependent on free and reduced meals provided at their public schools during the week and have little to eat over the weekend. The volunteers of Peach’s Pantry, Inc. work in partnership with school nurses, counselors and staff to identify children at risk for hunger and to supply them with nutritious, self-serve food that will sustain them when school meals are not available.
