WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

April 22, 2020 Basic Needs

During a normal academic year, 22 million students rely on schools for access to regular meals. Now with students out of the classroom, Communities In Schools® (CIS) affiliates across the country are working with community partners to provide food and essential items to those students and their families. 

Our volunteers and site coordinators are packing baskets of food, delivering items to families, and working with local organizations to obtain necessities for those in need.

In this time of crisis, we will do whatever it takes and go wherever we’re needed.
