It has been two months since Principal Tim Standlee set up a food locker at the front of the main building for Borah students, their parents, and the Borah community.

Standlee thought that this could help the students to eat healthy and not go hungry after school. It’s also available 24/7 to anyone who needs it.

The locker is not only filled with food, but also supplies for those who can’t afford them, such as deodorant, toilet paper, paper plates, soap, hygiene kits and so on. This project worked for many of the students who have needs but have no one else to help them. It started out simply and with almost no food.

Teachers were asking for help but it seemed to not work at all.

They decided to announce it and students, parents and Borah community came together for this cause and filled up the whole locker in a couple of days.

At first, students were hesitant about it and asked themselves “Is this really for everyone and is this really free?” Standlee wanted to fix this problem and was concerned with every single student’s health and life.

“A simple fix for simple problems,” said Standlee about the current problem that the school was facing.

Once everything was set up, staff decided to wait and see if students would use this opportunity.

Many students were skeptical about it at first but grabbed what they needed or wanted and enjoyed what the school and donors had to offer.

People took all type of things that were in the lockers. For example, shampoo, detergent, cereal, food cans, for example.

Fortunately the food locker was almost empty and more donors showed up to give what they thought people wanted.

Donors included students, parents, staff members, and Borah community members. Again, people picked up more food and supplies for themselves. It was truly an act that had to be made for Borah students now.

Borah staff ask for everyone to donate usable and edible items in the food locker, which is located in front of the main building. When donating, just open the locker and put your donations in the appropriate spots!
