In School Pantires

The In School Pantry Program has helped close the gap for teens experiencing food insecurity. Often times, there is stigma around adolescents when it comes to hunger, which is why CHOP utilizes the In School Pantry to normalize pantry use.
Normalizers, highly desired food items like water bottles, Chex, gum, and jerky, are introduced among fresh fruit, breakfast and dinner items. This self- serve model is available daily and self-policed. It also teaches students to self- advocate for their needs, as well as the needs of their siblings.

2020 IN SCHOOL PANTRY STATS
• More than 20 In School Pantry Programs
• 15,000 students have access daily to nutritious snacks and meals
• 2021-22 school year projections include 100 more schools, and increasing
access to 100,000 students daily.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since day one, we’ve focused on closing the meal gap and seeking out partnerships to end childhood hunger.

We use research to determine the hunger gap in our service areas. Then, we roll up our sleeves and get to work by launching Backpack Programs in local schools, creating Pop up Pantries in food deserts, and implementing programs that will reach the most vulnerable children.

We work with local food banks, schools, and generous donors to get food into the hands of kids. We have an incredible team of employees and volunteers who make this work possible.

By partnering with other local organizations, we are able to address food insecurity quickly and efficiently.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    We serve all children within PA and MD whom we can reach based on our partnerships with food banks, schools, and all other county providers. We do not require proof of income for a child to opt in to receiving our services. Instead, we have an "opt out" process where all children within the areas we serve are receive our services unless they choose to decline.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.),

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Currently we have not had to make any changes to our programs. All current feedback has been extremely positive and ultimately only leaves us with people asking us to continue doing exactly what we are doing instead of having to enact change.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    Our staff, Our board,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    Asking for feedback has really allowed us to enhance our relationship with those we serve because it allows us the ability ensure we are doing exactly what we need to make good on our mission. We are afforded major peace of mind by putting the ball in the court of those we serve and ultimately allow them the ability to dictate how we can be more efficient and beneficial to them moving forward.

    We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We act on the feedback we receive,
