Chemeketa Foundation Grocery Grant supports student needs after food pantry closure

The grocery grant, which made a limited amount of $50 grocery gift cards available to students, was designed to meet the urgent student need for food assistance. Many students face food insecurity, said Garcia Perez who also oversees Chemeketa’s food pantry. That means when the food pantry was shut down as a social distancing measure on March 20, many students were left without support for groceries.
