FBLA Food Bank

By Ava Smart

FBLA's Purpose?

Our community is one that all members in  FBLA admire, and the goal was to think of ways to give back. To do this Spencer, Emma, Ava, Valerie, and Angelina decided to open a non-profit community food bank. This group’s goal is to bring this project to FBLA state and    national competition.  
At this food bank they will be giving out canned goods and boxed foods, as well as some necessities such, shampoo, conditioner, baby food, and diapers. The food bank will be open every third Sunday of the month.  

What They Need From You! 
The food bank is always accepting monetary and physical    donations at the school and at the church. If you are interested in donating you can call the school at 701-694-2711 or message the   Grenora FBLA Facebook page.  
If you are a family who can’t make it when they are handing out the food on a specific date you may make arrangements when we can help you!
