Stop And Shop - Barnstable HS Open Food Pantry

Barnstable High School has opened its doors to help feed the hungry.

The ribbon was cut Monday on the Red Hawks Food Pantry and will provide students and their families with needed staples.

The school system received a 35-thousand-dollar donation from the Stop & Shop Food Pantry Program, and the school is also getting assistance from community groups on the Cape.

Figures show 58 percent of students in Barnstable alone are dealing with food insecurity, and nearly 60 percent of students qualify for free or reduced meals.
