School's Food Bank Open Every Thursday

 

With the holiday season in full swing and family budgets tight, a local middle school is reminding people in their neighborhood about the open-door policy at their food bank.

Bailey Middle School at 2500 North Hollywood Boulevard opens the doors of its food bank known as the Bailey Nest every Thursday.

School faculty and community partners are on hand from 3:15 to 4:15 p.m. to help families on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Since the nest opened last December, more than 2,00 families received help with food and clothing. The help did not just go to students at Bailey but to families in the surrounding neighborhoods.

"The Nest is one of the very special things about Bailey's location. We want our neighborhood to think of our school as a center of the community. That they can come to us for help with the essentials. It is our way of saying thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate the children of our neighborhood," Principal Terri Knepp said.
