Rice Depot and the Food For Kids program does a great job of assiting our students in need of food at home. We have several students who use this service weekly and it has been a great asset to our students. This program has made it possible for our kids to be able to focus on their studies and not worry about where their next meal may come from. This service allows us to keep the priority on learning rather than worrying about being having to help put food on the table.
