The Ames HOPE pantry is located at Ames Middle School and is available to all families in the District in need of emergency food supply. In addition to food, the pantry also has clothing, hygiene, and household items. It is supported by the work of our Student and Family Advocates who support all of our buildings.
Thanks to the generous and continuous donations from community partners, the H.O.P.E pantry is available to all families who are in need. Families who are having difficulty finding their next meal can access the pantry. Access to the pantry is offered in discreet and strategic ways.
The H.O.P.E. Pantry is open Tuesday-Friday by appointment from 9am-1pm. If you are interested in ways that you can donate to the pantry, please contact Jean Muhammad.
