Meal Gift CardsThere are more than 17,000 students in Davis School District who face food insecurity. School is often the only place where they are guaranteed a hot meal. When students are home for the weekend, or even long breaks such as winter break, they go without. One way to help ensure that these kids have food when they aren't at school is to provide them with meal cards.
- $10-$20 gift cards
- Purchase cards for fast food or local grocery stores. (i.e. McDonalds, Walmart, Smith's, Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, Jimmy John's, Winco, etc.)
- Please deliver cards to the Foundation Office: 45 East State Street, Farmington, UT 84025
Pantry PacksAside from meal gift cards, pantry packs play a vital role in filling food gaps for students when they aren't at school.
