    SUMMER HOURS:  The WJ Food Pantry is now open during our summer hours!  We serve customers via a drive-thru on Tuesdays from 6-7 pm.   

    Have a question about donating?   Monetary and food donations are welcome.  See the tab to the left. 

    Where: Portable Units (behind the school in the activity bus parking lot)

    When:   Tuesdays 4-5 p.m.  Regular hours  

    Who:  The WJ Food Pantry is open once a week to anyone in the Cleveland or McGee's Area in need of food. Customers are asked to complete a short survey and provide a state-issued photo id that has their current address, as well as provide report cards for dependents. An adult may shop for their partner and children attending school. However, adults cannot pick up food for other adults. For example, if you live in a household with your 23-year-old daughter, she will have to register and shop for herself. If your brother has come to live with you and he is over 18-years old, he will have to register and shop for himself. 

    What: Please drive-thru carefully.  Each family will receive a pre-packed quantity of food.  

    The list and quantity will vary each week depending on what food is available. However, the following items are typically available: canned or bagged beans, rice, frozen and/or canned meat, peanut butter, canned fruit, fresh fruit, canned vegetables, fresh vegetables, deli bread, cheese, and lunch meat.

    We conduct food drives throughout the year with the help of other clubs on campus. However, we are always in need of items and/or monetary donations. Checks can be made out to West Johnston High School c/o food pantry.

    Thanks to the purchasing power of the Food Bank in Raleigh, every dollar you contribute purchases 5 pounds of food for a family in need. 

    In the fall, we make an additional community appeal to help stock the pantry–especially to help families over the holidays. To help, fill a grocery bag with grocery items and return it to the front office at West Johnston High. Any and all items are deeply appreciated.
