The Parkville Network began to organize in the Spring of 2017, when a space was found in the school for the “Parkville Pantry.” After several large donations of food, toiletries, and clothing, the Pantry was up and running. The Pantry has also become a storage space for food and toiletries delivered to other offices and programs in the school, including Special Education, Evening Education and the ESOL program. Parkville Network funds have been used for emergency food assistance, shoes and clothing and support of the AVID program. There are now several regular volunteers working in the Pantry.
