LISD Stuff the Pantry Food Drive

Homestead Elementary, along with all other LISD schools, will be collecting canned/non-perishable food items during the week of October 30th-November 3rd.

Why is LISD participating in a food drive? Hunger hampers a student’s ability to learn, concentrate and perform well. In 2009, Texas was one of five states with the highest rate of “food insecure” children under 18. The Stuff the Pantry drive, a joint effort between Christian Community Action (CCA) and Lewisville ISD, will help provide food for families in the LISD community during the holiday season and through out the year. If you need help, or know someone who might, please call 972-436-HELP or log on to www.ccahelps.org for more information.

To participate, please place food items in the correct grade level basket located outside the front office. Every grade level will have a basket and the grade level that collects the most points will win an ice cream party!

Needed Holiday Items: (valued 2 points each)

Canned evaporated milk 16oz

Canned fruit 16oz

Instant potatoes, boxed

Canned pie filling

Canned yams 16oz

Boxed stuffing

Canned chicken broth

Canned cranberry sauce

Baking mixes (cake, cookie, etc)


Any other canned and non-perishable food items will be accepted and will be valued at 1 point each.
