The Fairfield Police Activities League’s (PAL) Community Service Club invites local middle and high school students to visit their Teen’s-Only Food Pantry on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month between 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
The next food pantry will be open on Friday, July 24, 2015.
The pantry offers basic staples and occasionally fresh fruit and vegetables for students. Each student may fill a box or bag to take with them at no cost. Members of the TACTS club host cooking demonstrations to teach students how to make the most of items available in the pantry. Past demonstrations have featured how to make black bean burgers, herbed corn, cooking with powdered milk (pineapple whips!), and more.
